The recycling park is located along the axis of the new master plan.
The recycling square has a recognizable façade for both visitors and people passing by.
The enfilade of concrete columns connects the dining area with the reception.
Both the reception and the dining area have large corner windows with a view over the square and the visitors.
The materialization of the building is inspired by the industrial environment: terracotta blocks, concrete plywood, pegboard and galvanized metal.
3 holes through the brickwork, of which 2 are conceived as windows, support the sight lines through the compact plan.
