REFURBISHMENT OF A CONVENT
Program: Refurbishment of an old Benedictine convent as a community centre
Location: Lumbier. Navarra. Spain
Author: Chocarro y Urmeneta S.L.P www.chyurm.com
Description: The main aim of the refurbishment was preserving its original volumetric and constructive entity.
It was ruined so the deck and the structure had to be consolidated. A Romanesque mosaic was found during the works, which was put in the elevation, where the entrance is located.
The internal distribution of the building was made with glass boxes, in 2 levels and separated from the masonry walls. They were supported with steel round columns located by pairs.
