Renovation of Convent de Sant Francesc – David Closes

The Catalan town of Santpedor could have demolished its crumbling convent and church to make way for a new and improved cultural center, but instead they chose to preserve and upgrade the space. Catalan architect David Closes was hired to lead the renovation of the Sant Francesc Convent and preserve this historic legacy of the space. Using modern interventions and materials, Closes shores up the ruin with glass, concrete and steel walls, staircases, and ramps. Walking through the bright and airy renovated space is a bit like exploring an archeological dig
