INSPIRATION:
The environment: Concello do Verín stands out by the heterogeneity of its blocks, which have been developed around an urban nucleus. Even though each block has different shapes, the way they are set is the same in most of them. This basic premise involve the concept of the proporsal. Each use of the program is materialized as a unit, as a volume that is aligned to the edge of the plot creating a space of coexistence and relationship, without hierarchies, supporting the idea of small community.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
¿Great home or small town? Arts center of Verín provides the intimacy of a home and the heterogeneity of a town. Each use of the program required is materialized as a unit, as a volume that is aligned to the edge of the plot creating a space of coexistence and relationship, without hierarchies, supporting the idea of ​​small community. It is a place defined by its own flexibility, unpredictable. Something involuntary that occurs as a result of the relationships of their own uses

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Due to the way it is set in the plan, and the independence of its use, this is a centre that can be changed and expanded easily, because both appearance and operation are unalterable. Between volumes irregular spaces arise as a cell, places of different scales that allow users enjoy rooms center and hide at once. Like a small town, center users interpret and live spaces freely and at will. They walk from one side to another, seeking privacy behind a corner or leave, are left to see and relate. Talking about the access, the visitor could entry through a large square in the corner where the three main roads conclude. A walk that will continue inside the building to enhance the idea of ‘town’. In addition, everytime that the volumes contact with the edge of the patch, some common spaces are generate, at the same time of exterior access of each volum is created.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research of the project was how to provide the intimacy of a home at the same time as the heterogeneity of a town in a public building. The objective was to create a 'comunity' in which each block was consider independently as a unit but keeping relationship with the others. Methodology: Respecting the scheme of individual volumes to the exterior and common space to the interior, the units are sliding according to its use and leting intersticial spaces appear.

CHALLENGE:
The City Hall of Verin required that each part of the building (according to the program: theatre, rooms, administration, restaurant) must work separately and consider them like different units. ¿How to do so but without avoiding the relationship between them? In conlusion, this scheme make separation and conexion of the units compatible, generating numerous nucleous that interact and change depending on the use of its ocupants. The budget of the project was reduced so we decided to use local materials like the stone. Another remarkable aspect of the building: its sustainable manner, due to the materials in the urban land (Green spaces and reciclable pavement) and the installations, that allows energy and water savings.
