Copper Link, Spain

Ruth Montero del Barrio/Laura Camara Bados

The Town Hall in Castillejo de Mesleón, Segovia, Spain, needed a restoration and extension. The building was built for the first time in1931 and its main use was as public school. The challenge was to restore and build a construction according to modern times, but integrated in the traditional architecture of the area. We found in COPPER the perfect material to link both concepts.

Three volumes were designed: "Main functions volume", "Auxiliary functions volume" and the COPPER LINK.

The "Main functions volume" has been restored on its ground floor, and a new floor has been added. 

Public functions are developed in ground floor, meanwhile private offices are found in the first floor.  COPPER LINK is the relationship between public and private areas.

In ground floor COPPER LINK is the relationship between "Main functions volume" and "Auxiliary functions volume".

Both, "Main functions volume" and "Auxiliary functions volume" have been built according to traditional architecture.

In a poetic sense COPPER LINK is not only the relationship between different functions (public/private - main/auxiliary) but also between traditional and modern architecture.

COPPER LINK is the core of the building
