The thesis deals with the creation of a public standard Sports School in the space of "T.L.C." (Thessalian Liquor Corporation), whose sports facilities are open to public during the hours that the school remains closed.
The "T.L.C.", commonly known as "Alcohol" is an industrial complex, which remains abandoned within the urban area of the city of Volos and is a source of contamination and degradation. Specifically, the factory is located in the district Agioi Anargiroi, a purely residential area with a few local small businesses and mostly degraded.
The thesis proposes the creation of a new building in the center of the site, in which the courses will be held, the sports facilities are placed on the west side and the other supportive uses are housed on the east side, where the industrial complex exists. The school gives the students and teachers of sports schools of other cities the opportunity to visit and stay there, as it provides guest houses. In addition, healthy meals are offered to the students throughout the school hours.
Regarding to the design part, the existing stone buildings are preserved, a factwhich contributes to thepromotion of the historical and aesthetic value of the factory,as it is a landmark.The design of the new building follows an orthogonal grid and is made of concrete. Furthermore, there are created some boxes of oxidized steel plates in specific places, which form the relaxation areas. In addition, the new building is placed in such a way on the site, so that there is a connection with the old ones and creating at the same time the schoolyard between them. Finally, since the indoor sports facilities require height, purpose was to submerge them partly under the ground with the aim of integrating them to the heights of the area buildings.
Physical education and sports are meansofeducation and recreation and through the reuse the factory complex will be transformed into a living cell of culture and social actions, which should lead to rising growth of the regions development.
