ClientArjona Town Council

The proposal involved the consolidation and conservation of different defensive elements and creating a interpretation space of the walls of the Alcázar of Arjona to value and publicize this defensive complex. This is a public space for tourist and cultural use made up of various areas that coincide with the original starts, dispositions and heights of the remains of the various known wall structuren: the moat space, the liza space, the podium space and the tower. The intervention was based on preserving the authenticity and integrity of the monument through use of traditional construction.
