ABOUT

RENOVATION OF BENAVENTE TOWN HALL, SPAIN.

The project is a complete renovation of the interior of an old neoclassic building from the middle of the nineteenth century. Only the outer shell of the building is conserved. It is a Neotuscan-style structure consisting of a façade and a portico. In the seventies renovations were carried out which completely destroyed the whole interior. After some years in disuse it recovered its function as a Town Hall.
The intervention revolves around very few materials and two pieces proposed in the project: a red curtain and the new staircase. With these two pieces the guidelines were set for the intervention. The space is defined by the flows of changing views and movements which its visitors will subsequently produce i.e. the new space does not depend on the perimeter structure formed by the walls of the old building.
