As host of the 1995 World Ski Championships, Sierra Nevada, Granada, was forced to upgrade its facilities. Among the projects carried out were extensions and improvements of new ski runs in the mountains, with a program that meets the criteria for the correct practice of the sport. This provided the resort with a building dedicated to hospitality, shelter and first aid, equipment storage, a beginners’ school and equipment hire, in addition to ski lift facilities for access to the slopes.
The spatial organisation comprises not only the construction but also the organisation of outdoor space to accommodate the different ski runs, whether they are for participants, school use or bluestake ski runs.
The area in use measures around 60,000 m2, of which the six buildings occupies 15,000 m2. The character of the building is purely alpine, adapted to local features and built using local materials wherever possible.
