Peniche Neighborhood, Vigo

University College of Dublin

Bachelor of Architecture

2011-2012

My thesis project is a rehabilitation project of an old cannery in the city of Vigo, Spain. This factory was built in 1960, but now it is in disuse. The building has a good structural condition and is empty inside. Also it is surrounded in two faces by undeveloped plots. The project consists of a big center for Skating, a very popular sport in this city, so that I create skating tracks, a school where people can learn and a factory where all the skate stuff are manufactured and repaired. The rehabilitation project was designed in order to preserve the facades and the structure. I only opened a part of the façade in order to create a better relation between the inside and the outside. So, in this way, the exterior skating tracks come in the building. Other important characteristic is that I created a big glass box in the center hole of the building where I put the main skating track that it is used as an axis where, and around it, the skating factory and the other skating activities are developed.
