The project consisted in the renovation of old military headquarters built in the middle of the 20th century in Turo de Gardeny in Lleida, the area to be worked on consisted in three floors with some 600 m² floor, with a clear rationalistic disposition of pillars and structure related to the military period. The project consisted in the preparation and creation of a new corporate image, in relation to the interior space, in order to be able to provide a location for ILERNA ONLINE professional training offices.

From the start of the project we decided to leave certain features as the scars of the original military building. Stairwell heights or reinforced concrete floors, the little that remained after partial work had taken place.

We therefore, started with the combination of three unique materials, white wood, wood for ceilings and grey floor tiles.

We used 3×3 white slats, which embraced the whole area and illuminated spaces both on the west and south side, which bathed the offices and central corridors in light, plus created different textures of changing shadows.

This white connection resolved two important aspects of the project, one the acoustics in the areas of movement, and two, it unified and gave us contrasting rhythms and readings on each floor, while replicating the areas concerned with similar levels on each floor and throughout the project itself.

We decided to leave the stairwell perimeter floors exposed, to save the 4.50 m in height and hide the zenithal lighting, and therefore, help the volume of the stairs distribution area stand out, and at the same time lowered the ceilings for increased proportional, visual and acoustic comfort with 2.50 in common areas and circulation areas, avoiding purely office type materials and preferring domestic ones, as well as looking for a dialogue between more friendly materials, and the transfer of increased friendliness, comfort and visual warmth to the workplace.

When it came to the distribution of space we also wanted to provide the maximum visual depth to all floors, and not constrain the perspectives of these floors, but to also be able to understand the dimensional volume of the original building using the glass spaces strategically located, in essence providing the area with visual depth and not converting it into simple airtight work spaces.

To transfer a domestic project in textures and in simplicity of forms, while working as simply as possible.
