Trip Trap

Youth & Senior Center

Trip trap is a combined youth and senior centre in at typical Eixample Quarter in Barcelona. It is a universally designed building where readability, transparency and invitation is the main project tool.
A diagonal succession of double and triple height spaces give a vertical connection between floors that are expressed in the facade and may be seen from the street. The transparency between rooms facilitates internal interaction between users and interaction between the building, the neighbour school, the street and the city.
