The proposed proposal for the renovation of the Centre of Artistic Production La Regenta, intends to deal with two fundamental aspects: promoting the "emptiness arcaded space" characteristic of the industrial buildings of the time and organizing an "architecturale promenade" through the enclosure, finished at the top with a piece of cafeteria_restaurant_terrace which complements the leisure and cultural use of the building and establishes relationships between the proposal and its nearest urban environment.
The intervention itself is reduced to a minimum: a system of ramps that climb the rear dividing and organize the "architecturale promenade" ending in a piece of cafeteria_restaurant_terrace, which simultaneously solves the covering of the void. The projection of the yard in the ground floor is dug creating terraces which constitute a polyvalent space in which screenings can be organized and at a particular time be independent from the rest of the floor and become a conference room.
The proposal is materialized by a wooden skin that folds and shapes the different areas of travel that empty into the void. The new is understood as a unitary way through the continuity of the used material, compared with pure white of the existing.
