El Pico After School Community Center


El Pico

after school community center for kids

Located in the northern coastal town of Santander, a modern Spanish town, partially isolated by the surrounding mountain terrain. The center will offer a variety of programs and activities that will expose the children to things they may not have had the opportunity to experience.

Each element of El Pico’s design was carefully designed to reflect Santander’s unique natural surroundings. Bright, bold colors and materials reflected by the ocean, trees, tropical flowers, and the sun, form four unique, yet related concepts. On the inside, the curved walls and staircases draws the user in, inviting them to experience and explore the space. The exterior was designed more traditionally, so it would better fit in with the surrounding structures. Terraces Exterior Elevation at Entry on either side of the building allow the user access the rooftop and provide a space to sit and experience the outdoors.
