Outrun is a project born from the necessity of a space to support external running athletes. These spaces are equipped with the basic needs for an athlete to run: shower room, lockers and shops.

This project was developed under a curricular briefing on the Aveiro University. The objective was to develop, from the root, a business idea and all of its design elements required to run it.

The project has had a particular dimension derived from all the elements developed. For it to be possible was needed a conjunction of 5 people from different specialities in design. My principal role in this project was essentially the development of the physical spaces.

Other elements have also been developed for the project. The website was developed as a platform for the connection between Outrun and the clients. It provided news and basic information for the runners/athletes and also an online shop where the clients can buy equipment.

One of the most difficult challenges we faced was the small size of the facilities. From that we have had to take a careful approach to the layout of the space.

The project was then submitted to the 6º Students Edition of BID, and Ibero American Design Meeting. There we achieved an Honorable Mention.
