Design proposal for the refurbishment and design of the existing plaza around the Plaza de Toros of Alcázar de San Juan, this area is key connection between the city and the countryside, just on the limit of the city and will be come the feature of the next city expansion

The proposal seek to add connection with the existing Plaza de Toros by the creation of concentric circles around the existing building, secondly we propose the creation of a versatile conceptual space to hold different activities of the city, from eventual performances to playground areas and refreshment points
The finishes proposal includes local limestone floor pattern, different colours and textures will define all the proposed areas and will lead the people through the plaza, this finish will be used too in the car road in order to combine and create as one only plaza, avoid visual frontiers and potentially to use the existing parking and roads for large events also

The proposal includes a special pergola around the existing building, finish on corten steel with micro-holes that combine perfectly with the finishes in the existing building. The pergola will help to shadow the pathways during the day and illuminate them during night; this structure will be used for activities such local Sunday market

The design is completed with different spaces to provide colors, vegetation and live, the existing trees will remain as key of the project and will be combined with local aromatic flowers and decorative elements in the flooring
