Building Rehabilitation for Offices in Madridejos

This is a rehabilitation project of a vulgar and obsolete public building located in a rural setting.

The null architectural quality and bad energy efficiency of the existing building before the intervention would suggest that it is much better to demolish and rebuild it, but we are in times of paradigm shift, we want to bet for recycle and not building more and more.

We created a "Protective Brick Basket", as the architectural strategy followed for recycling this building. Learning from the local culture, we imitate the attitude of those big bottles protected with wicker coatings, used by local farmers to bring them to the countryside to work and keep cool the water inside.
