Historic ruins restored with a geometric façade


Historic Ruins restored with Geometric FacadeThe crumbling ruins of a convent in Spain have been restored using a striking geometric façade.

Demolished in 2000, remnants of the early 18th century Sant Francesc Convent were previously all that remained of the church building. David Closes renovated the church by integrating faceted glass elements into the three hundred year old building.

The glass façade unites the crumbling structure and echoes the church’s original geometry with parallel lines. Incorporating striking modern elements into his design, the architect showcases the original design with a subtle update.

Take a closer look at the convent here.
