Reconversion of a conventional surface parking located in the upper part of the city of Barcelona. The waterproofed surface of the parking lot contributed to generate important run-offs, with consequent drags and increased pollution, increased flooding, increased frequency and intensity of systems discharges in rainy weather, overloads in the sanitation network ... which cause problems in the lower parts of the city.It is transformed into an underground car park, releasing the surface and recovering the landscape by incorporating sustainable drainage techniques and solutions based on nature. The objective is to intercept, filter, retain, laminate and infiltrate the rainwater falling on the plot itself, as well as all that arrives from the adjacent upper streets, thus relieving the hydraulic load within the existing sewer network.The elements that are part of this sustainable rainwater management system are: filtering drains, bioretention zones, rain gardens and reservoirs / infiltration systems to replenish the water table, among others.
