The intervention on the ruin is shown as a sculptural element with a protective character. Its form, with a definite contemporary language, responds to the distant landscape while intends to become a landmark.
The section of the building shows the relationship between the ruin and the new building. Formal language and materials further differentiate these two styles, combined to provide a new use of the space.
This three-dimensional representation, made of wood and copper, allows us to observe the project as a whole, and to understand how the accesses and levels are resolved in the steep terrain where the church is located.
The auditorium has an undulating shape, the white concrete façade forms a balcony over the main entrance facing the square. It is an organic, futuristic design that blends into the vegetation of the urban park.
The house is an open viewpoint that captures and forms part of the landscape. With a simple gesture, the flat green roof is extended to form a cantilevered porch. The simple materials are combined with pure lines and the transparency of the large windows.
From the front porch of this modern home, covered by a cantilevered roof, the silhouette of the nearby village can be seen. The simple tempered glass balustrade protects the deck without obscuring the landscape, while the natural stone wall contrasts with the smooth finishes of the exterior.
The auditorium section shows the appearance of the concert hall, the acoustic ceiling, the fly loft, the stage, the stalls and the orchestra pit. All this is wrapped in a corrugated skin of white concrete.
The nave of the church is represented with a new steel structure. In this way, the space becomes an open-air auditorium where you can enjoy the music and the view of the landscape while appreciating the ruin as per the original layout.
The ground floor of this renovated cultural building shows the public square from which the exhibition hall is accessed. The square is enclosed at both ends, while the front is framed by the bridge containing the residential module.
The shape of the auditorium hall together with the circulation of the audience determine the symbolic form of the building. The external image reveals the use of the space and its public character, this being an intuitive building where form follows function.
