Sustainability, durability and austerity stand as the main criteria behind a multifunctional project by OAB for an educational Natura School in Barcelona, Spain.

Colonial Viladoms Houses work as small community, a tiny city with a total project area of 770sqm. Three different areas compose this architectonic complex: service buildings, classrooms and sleeping quarters.

A volumetric fragmentation into small autonomous units was conceived to attain the sense of living in a micro urban scale, promoting a deeper relation between inhabitants and the surrounding natural context. In fact, the entire design concept pursuits the conventional image of the imaginary world of childhood: small houses, forest, roads… elements that easily allow any kind of future extension of the system.
