Administration’s Pavilion at the Hospital de Sant Pau – restoration of facades

Project description

The pavilion is part of the modernist enclosure assembly Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, included in the current catalog of historical and artistic heritage of the city of Barcelona, and a UNESCO world heritage site in 1997.

The original project was designed by architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner, and is part of the first group of pavilions that were built between 1902 and 1944. It is located in the south extrem Enclosure Hospital as the representative entrance of the enclosure. The hospital complex had reached a state of functional collapse and after the transfer of health activity to the new hospital, the restoration of the facades, west and central part, took place in ordrer to recover and restore the originally projected image.
The facades, made so strongly historiscista, recover their integrity: fabrics, sculptures, mosaics, decorative elements, and configuration of openings (doorways and windows). The important archival documents preserved in the hospital (and other external centers) has provided guidance throughout the process.
