Daycare center and residence
Miguel Bertrán de Lis Bartolomé
The project is understood as an oportunity to dignify the lives of those who will inhabitate it. It deepens in the roots of murcian traditions to loo find the answers. The life in the groves is the driving force behind the design process; a life based on humbleness and hard work, in close liaison with nature and local climate.
The complex is composed of two buildings surrounded by gardens and patios; a thought as units of greenery brought from local ecosystems. By planting these landscapes of the murcian imaginary we look to make the project feel more like home.
These gardens generate a sense of remembrance that apeels to sensations we keep inside us and brings up our most precious memories. Memories created from experiencies where our senses come into play: smells, imagenes, textures... A place where, at the end of the day, and the warm, orange light of the dusk bathes the fruits, vegetables and plants, the people who live there will go out to the gardens to play games, dance or have conversations under a tree. In essence, going out to the groves, to nature and celebrate life.
