gypsy brotherhood

Competition for the new headquarters of the Brotherhood of Gypsies. Seville

The exterior image of the building seeks to be treated as a building for singular use, its façade recalls the silhouette  of the wall that accompanies it,  the flared holes also recall the castle loopholes and their scale seek to create an environment in keeping with the church, since the open spaces that surround the complex allow it.

Also looking for a  element that differentiates the environment that shows its religious character, the building is surrounded on the ground floor, with a golden latticework, which recalls in its design the golden vents  of a basket  as well as in the center of the module the shield of the brotherhood is recreated simplified, this element allows us to give security to the holes on the ground floor, generate the entrance, let the light pass , qualify the exterior views but at the same time  create a milestone in the environment with such a powerful piece.

To finish off the building following a classic scheme of basement, development and cornice, we propose to make a large reinforced concrete corbel painted in gold, which helps us to complete the image of the building.
