PROJECT: DAILY CARE CENTER FOR CHILDREN
The design was part of a bidding procedure for the Rehabilitation and Adaption of some existing enterprises in Social Centers, organized by the Municipality of Tirana. Our concept designs made possible for us to win the first prize in this competition. The existing building was in very bad conditions so beside the adaptation, it was necessary to reconstruct all the building. We thought that covering the existing building in sandwich panels, not only will provide a thermal insulation, but it also will create an attractive volume if applied in the right way. A building in a tube shape can be very attractive and inviting for the children that need help and some place nice where to be protected from the road. The large windows and the combination of the polycarbonate with the sandwich panels offer plenty of light in the inside. The services offered by this center are medical care, education, feeding, sleeping, etc. As the building is too long, we thought to divide it in two parts according to the kind of services. So we have an entrance for the medical and education services and another entrance for the area of soup-kitchen and sleeping rooms. These two entrances are situated in the extremities of the building. The red and orange colors make the building more joyful.
