Errebal urban elevator
Public urban elevator between Muzategi and Jardiñeta streets
Location: Eibar (Gipuzkoa)
In collaboration with: VAUMM
Status: Execution project
In cities natural development towards sustainability, accessibility plays a key role. It becomes an opportunity to trigger social cohesion and integration in all society’s segments.
The proposal aims to solve Jardiñeta neighborhood’s accessibility issue, linking it to the new Errebal complex and to the city center.
The new elevator tries to get integrated into the urban landscape minimizing its impact through scale, shape and position.
Structure’s lightness and the strategic position of the footbridges, far from the housing buildings, try to preserve dwellings intimacy. At the same time, tower’s and accesses’ transparency guaranty user’s safety.
Material durability and low maintenance requirements have been important for the choice of materials and constructive solutions.
