Enlarged parish offices. Perfect square courtyard with geometric rigour

Architect Pablo Millan has designed an expansion of the parish offices in Porcuna, a Spanish municipality in the community of Andalusia with a historical background full of complexity and the typical references of a city of art

The complexity of the site is based on the numerous heights and medians of the buildings in the vicinity, with fragments of tower walls, historic walls, old courtyards. The project stems from the desire to bring order to these complex spaces

Together with the old walls, a perfect central patio is designed with a square shape. Geometrical precision is used and everything appears to be minimal and perfectly proportioned with a clear reference to the cloisters of monasteries, ideal for a parish centre floor
