Institutional, San Juan 2013

    The lack of appropriate space for meetings and conferences between Congress members and constituent groups, mostly from medium to large in size, dominated the circumstances of this commission. The space assign for this project is an existing and scarcely visited library which is in the process of being digitalized, for reasons of efficient use of space, accessibility to information and digital era trends. The existing library occupies what used to be a courtyard space appropriated from this historical building during the 1980's. The existing library space added a new floor and erases any notion of the previous courtyard by filling all arch and wall openings, and establishing a new 2-story modern façade with ornaments mimicking the existing this historical Spanish Revival jewel.
