Complete rehabilitation of an old building in Murcia.

The supporting structure of load-bearing walls has been maintained in order to preserve the interior space, keeping the distances between slabs of about 4.5 meters.

The homes of the first and second floors have been replaced by professional offices, while those in the third floor were completely renovated using the space below the new zinc roof to get two duplex dwellings with terrace.

The staircase and its handrail are kept from the original building, while in the center of the staircase a translucent glass box, lit internally, is placed to locate the elevator. It serves as the only lighting of this communications hub.

The street facade is cleaned of moldings, cornices and other motifs; its color is ligthen  to improve both the building presence and the atmosphere of this narrow street. Each facade section shows a different material depending on the use of the space behind: zinc in the houses on top, lime stucco on the main body of professional offices and stone on the basement facade.
