New Work ::: Convent de Sant Francesc
Photographer: Jordi Surroca
Architect David Closes renovated an 18th century stone church of Sant Francesc convent in Santpedor, Spain. The project was aimed to convert the church into an auditorium and a multifunctional cultural facility. The intervention aimed to renovate the old church without removing the stains of deterioration and demise, so partially collapsed roofs and walls are elegantly transformed into windows and skylights. The result maintains the spatial values and historical scars of the old church whilst layering it with a contemporary language.
