The goal of this project is to create a ludoteca which represents the idea of universal, integrated, open and inclusive accessibility. A space that lends itself to autonomy and active use and provides comfort to children with disabilities.
In order to achieve our purpose, we count on three elements in this project: a ramp (1) that runs through all the spaces in the ludoteca ; a large central space (2) that consists in a wooden box structure strategically pierced in order to obtain crossed views and connections between the spaces of the building; a series of patios (3) that characterize each ambient of the ludoteca and help to follow the course of the ramp.
The ludoteca offers two concentric spaces: the central one, private and invisible from the outside, faces the indoor patios and its green areas; the perimetrical space, which is intended to face the exterior. On the ground floor, this intention is materialized in the continuity of the rooms towards the garden, which enlarges this way the children’s playing areas. On the first floor this perimetrical space is characterized by the high luminosity generated by the building’s double skin, which softens sunlight as well as lets an efficient energy control.
