Refurbishment

New laboratories for Emasesa

This unique project involved building a technological centre for science, innovation and research in an unused water tank at Emasesa's facilities in Seville. The redevelopment project of the pre-existing building, which is around 7 metres high and boasts a volume capacity of 70,000 m3, allowed four laboratories to be housed around an impressive central courtyard area. 

In order to adapt the building for its new use, four types of openings were made in the pre-existing roof, allowing it to be properly lit and ventilated (along the central cloister, large perimeter openings, inner working courtyards and open spaces for facilities were created). The laboratories were designed with flexibility in mind and thus have lightweight partitions and spaces set aside which allowed for the spaces to be redistributed and adapted to the daily work carried out at the complex. They were also designed to provide maximum functionality with easily-identifiable work spaces and distribution flows to segregate visitors, staff and goods. 

Para garantizar la puesta en carga del edificio, se establecen cuatro tipos de perforaciones en la cubierta preexistente que permiten iluminar y ventilar las nuevas dependencias (junto al claustro central, se practican grandes aperturas perimetrales, patios interiores de trabajo y espacios abiertos para instalaciones). Los laboratorios, por su parte, se desarrollan de manera flexible, con particiones ligeras y espacios en reserva que permitirán la redistribución de espacios para ajustarse al funcionamiento diario del complejo; y funcional, con espacios de trabajo identificables y flujos de distribución segregada de los visitantes, el personal y las mercancías.
