REAL CLUB NÁUTICO DE DÉNIA
New facilities adapted to the present
The Real Club Náutico Denia, inaugurated in 1968, is located in a unique enclave on Spain, being one of the main nautical clubs on the Mediterranean coast. Its more than a thousand members have a multitude of services at their disposal, including restaurants, sailing, swimming pool, gymnasium, conference rooms, etc. That is why it is more than a Nautical Club, it is a meeting place, and therefore, it should be understood as a point of connection between lovers of the sea and sailing.
The main building has facilities that have been gradually modernised since its construction, thus offering a closer and wider service to members, with the capacity to house more than 600 boats of up to 20 metres in length.
The proposed action reflected in this project focuses on redistributing the ground floor services, with the exception of the recently refurbished restaurant, and thus facilitating the transit of people around the RCND (making it more accessible to all members), and in turn modernising the existing facilities and services.
To facilitate this transit and also bring the user closer to the Mediterranean, a new route through the building is proposed. This new opening provides access and natural lighting while dividing and organising the ground floor of the building into two areas.
In the west area there is a large main lobby where the new panoramic lift is incorporated, which connects the three floors vertically, eliminating architectural barriers. There is also a customer service area and a more reserved area for resting, reading, chatting or accessing the internet. Next to this is the general administration area for the whole complex, as well as a more informal meeting room, with a video area and a bar, reserved for members.
In the east area, the services for members are incorporated, consisting of a shower and changing room area, a gymnasium and the seamen's and sports service. This area also incorporates a new service such as a bicycle parking area.
