The Youth Space of Northern Valladolid is located in a former social building from the 1960's, where The City Council decides to locate an infrastructure intended for youngsters that allows them to meet, study, attend concerts, conferences, etc. It’s a place for culture, music and art. On the outside, the building is given a new metallic “coat” that increases its insulation. Inside, the absence of cladding brings back a “raw” look, translating into a simple and sustainable intervention. The collaboration of a graphic artist powers the idea of the building as a creative support.
