SAN JERONIMO 17 is a workspace, an office that brings together concepts and materials within a property situated in the historic centre of Granada. Defined by a strong structure made of bricks 60 centimetres wide and wooden floors from the late nineteenth century, this place is a palimpsest of successive interventions dedicated to the use of recycled elements: pieces of shuttering wood taken from a music school have been used to create a channelling infrastructure for network cabling and the storage of books or models; six wooden doors, some metal shutters and pieces of glass salvaged from its demolition, along with several metal profiles from the refurbishment of a house in Granada, are assembled for the formation of new openings. Even the plasterboard fragments left by the previous tenant are connected and transformed into a new infrastructure for electricity and lighting. A door taken from our old studio has been reused as a cornerstone. San Jeronimo 17 is a project born of opportunity, made of what we found locally, with the reuse of materials from previous projects or even with the discovery of unexpected historic contiguities.
This dynamic has been made visible, revealing different strata with each brick, indicating its heritage as part of a continuous history of layered elements.
