Conservatorio en Ibiza
In its organization the building passes through an outer patio, of greater scale , to an interior minor one. The activity in the conservatory is developed around these two courtyards.
The Learning Patio, which contains Music and Dance classes, Teachers’ Hall, Administration and Archives.
The Courtyard of the Representation, which harbors Multipurpose Room, Auditorium, outdoor bleachers, arrival yard and specialty shops.
The project can be summarized by these two courtyards, where the Learning includes the innermost and deprived activities of the School, classrooms, rehearsal rooms and meeting rooms between professors. A patio that closes itself upwards in the same way up as a cloister, with the classrooms around a void through which the light goes down and reaches the lower floors.
The other courtyard, the Representation one, spins around the more public, social activities of the Conservatory. This is when the school users are more related to the street and the city, where it becomes more social. This courtyard defines the center of the block, making contact with other buildings and the views of the neighbors more pleasant.
Facade with volume.
The folded façade, protected with wooden lamas, pretends to be a background of different depths, with shadow variation in its planes, a curtain for the open patio where the educational activities of the interior extend.
On the other side of the facade those same folds accommodate the classrooms around a patio and introduce a diagonal circulation completed with the one which folds inwards towards the corner of the city.
