Sports and Leisure Centre in Langreo


Langreo in Asturias, capital of the coal mining industry in Spain, the town is a very dense conglomerate surrounded by mountains, with a mix of housing, industrial buildings, mineshafts, large cooling towers, heat generating plant, etc.   The town centre twists and turns along the banks of the river Nalón.

The project has been developed within a plan to transform and regenerate the coal-mining area of Asturias, following a deep crisis in a sector that until now had been its main source of wealth: its coal mines.

We understood that within this context, the building should have a symbolic, turn-of-the-century appeal, marking a turning point in the life of the coalfields of Asturias.

In Langreo, the general impression is that there is little land available. The existing space was taken up by the surrounding mountains, the hitherto booming industrial area and the homes of all those who had found work there.

The idea submitted was based on this concept: to propose a new landscape rather than a new building. To waste nothing of the existing available land.
