Refurbishment of the West Tower in Huesca City Hall, Spain

Ana Moron Hernandez

The Huesca Historical Archives Tower is part of the Huesca City Hall. It’s a XVII century building which originally belonged to the Imperial College of Santiago.

Before the intervention the building gave the impression of being an unfinished construction, for the west wall was a mud party wall, seeming as if in the past it might have had an adjoining construction which was demolished in the XIXth century when Monsieur Boyrie Street was opened.

In the intervention, we intend to treat the side closings, east and west, turning them into façades, so that the unfinished piece will turn into a tower with presence of its own.

East and west façades are made of folded copper, a fine material with a good relation with the existing materials. The plinth is made of sandstone similar to the existing one.

The south facade maintained its original appearance, working the central window with the same wood used in the inside

East and west façades establish a heavy-light dialogue with the original volume and has a small projection as is usual with defence towers in the province of Huesca

The Archives’ image has also had its purpose as a book container as a reference.

In the Library unit, a few slats have been removed, thus creating deep cracks that allow light into the inside in a way which is coherent with the distribution of the books.

The spaces left by the slats are like the space left by a book in a big scale library.
