Casa de Campo, Madrid, Spain

“Casa de Asturias”, an obsolete building in la Feria de Campo in Madrid aims to be transformed into a Film & Theatre School. The project makes use of the existing structure of the building by maximising the idea of architectural recycling. A new structure is added to the most public part of the building, a patio, whilst its existing structure is maintained. The existing spaces aim to be as flexible as possible so the subdivision of spaces can vary in relation to the required use of the space.

The plaza and the cafeteria become the social catalysers, from where the rest of the work and productions spaces are organised. The materiality and landscape adds to the experiential quality of the project.
