Integral Rehabilitation of Building For Eleven Tourist Apartments and Two Shops

FAQ arquitectura as Architects

This work has consisted of completely rehabilitating a building in the center of Seville to turn it into a building of tourist apartments and shops. The building was the historic headquarters of Almacenes Arias, traditional weaving shop of the capital of Seville, on the pedestrian and commercial street Puente y Pellón. During its history it underwent different renovations, some due to the fire that took place in the year 75, being a heterogeneous construction materially and structurally.

It is decided to replace a large part of the structure due to its poor condition and the intervention is used to empty and make a large semicircular patio that allows the appearance of interior apartments. Given the irregularity of the place and the need to make the most of the surface, all vertical communications and facilities run on one side in a compact block.

Large gaps will allow the apartments to be very bright. In the patio, through a ceramic latticework that will cover its facades and vegetation, you will have a pleasant space where you can separate from the hustle and bustle of the city center.

Finally, Puente y Pellónstreet, one of the main commercial areas of the city, is a road with a continuous traffic of people which makes it have a dynamic character. The facade seeks to take advantage of this dynamism, making a nod to op art artists such as Carlos Cruz Diez, making some very simple railings that change their appearance as the passer-by goes his way.
