The new pavilion is made up of two parts. On the one hand, the large volume that contains the multi-sports courts, and on the other, a low-height piece whose objective is to feed the user court and contain the auxiliary spaces. This is configured in such a way that it collects the flows of people from Calle Feria, the most important road in the area, and connects them with the new pavilion.
The strategy adopted responds to the needs requested in the program but offering a large longitudinal space where massive and extraordinary events can be held. This low body, which we call “the arm”, is projected as a large dynamic urban hall. A space that in addition to fulfilling the objective of collecting users and locating part of the program, offers a meeting place.
The entrance to the new pavilion takes place through the new access plaza, common to the Enrique Blas pavilion. It will be in this area near Feria Street where a "head" is configured that houses the reception, administration offices, meeting room and some auxiliary and service spaces.
The access makes you turn 90º to focus on the “arm”, which will take us to the slopes. Once inside, the “arm” folds, offering us, on the one hand, a ramp with a 6% slope that will take us to the level of the stands and, on the other, continue at the same access level and reach the changing rooms. Thanks to this fold, the two main flows of the project are divided into different levels. At the lower level the athletes and users, and at the upper level the general public.
The promenade to the stands is projected as a great promenade illuminated from above by small-scale saw teeth. Once the maximum height of the ramp is reached, we reach the access to the stands. On this level there is a bar under the tiered structure of the bleachers.
On the lower floor, which is at the same level as the access, a package of offices is projected for teachers, referees and health personnel. As well as an infirmary. These "rooms" will be built as small volumes of glass, leaving a patio between them and the old pavilion. Continuing towards the track we arrive at the changing room area. Three identical changing rooms are projected in order to comply with the recommendations of the NIDE standards. Each of these will be equipped with a sink and toilet area, a locker area and a change of clothes, and showers. The three changing rooms will have direct access to the track, at the same level.
The roof of the extension acquires a main character in the designof the project. The “arm” piece will be covered by small west-facing saw teeth. The cover of the new track is projected as large-scale saw teeth turned relative to the ground in order to find the north orientation. These large spans will be supported by a metal truss structure. Natural lighting will be ideal in each of these spaces.
