Radio Museum Expansion in Ponferrada, Spain by VAUMM architects + taperstudio

The expansion project is built around a new courtyard, which houses the entrance to the building and provides support for “sound” connection with the old museum. The piece is inserted in the historic center offering a renewed image from the traditional imaginary. The connection of the volumes at the end of the courtyard and the inner spatial distribution, organizing servant and served spaces- enable a clear and easy travel throughout the building.

Radio Museum Expansion

The proposal seeks to replicate from a contemporary point of view the traditional relationship of solids and voids of the stone facades of the historic center of Ponferrada.
Masonry constructions are forced to open small holes which are opened without clear pattern on the surface of the walls. Similarly, the proposal represents their facades by composing this random distribution while maintaining the square shape of the holes to establish a law of order in the composition.
A game that highlights equality and diversity as a theme, echoing also the relationship between the original part of the museum and the future expansion.
