The existing community center in this neighbourhood has fallen into disrepair. To restore the vitality in this area, a new urban intervention is needed. An open public plaza for community activities would act as a focal point for gathering the citizens together. The edge of the new plaza would be framed by a series of social public functions, the sports facilities would be placed below ground. The framing edge is broken up into individual blocks to match the scale and aesthetic of the neighbourhood. The slope of the site enables two formal entrances from the pedestrian level. The cultural plaza entry is from the public garden above. The sports arena and pool entrance is from a smaller courtyard below. This separation allows multiple diverse social activities to take place in the same area at the same time without interfering with each other.
