PROJECT: MULTIFUNCTIONAL CENTER
It is very important to create a nice and warm place for the people in need , and architecture can do a lot. 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 is built during the communism era for industrial use. It was in very bad conditions so beside the adaptation, it was necessary to reconstruct all the building. As the existing roof is in bad conditions we proposed to replace it with sandwich panels, giving a declination of 4% in the longitudinal direction. This will accent the linear form of the building, considering the multifunctional services that this center offers. The services that this center provides are the psychologist, the library, the forum hall, the handicraft, the recreation activities, etc. It also offers different outdoor activities, in the garden around the building.
