Working in collaboration with “Arrizabalaga Arquitectos” Studio, we develop the design of different elements structure in Convent of the Order of the Brothers of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Fuenterrabía. Made on prestressed concrete, the structure included columns, slabs and beam walls.
There were also two singular elements in the project, the connection between two buildings with a footbridge, and the chapel light tube.
The footbridge is a steel Vierendeel beam, with steel stays for stiffen the frames, and glass for covering the structure and protecting not only the pedestrians from the weather, but also the privacy of the habitants.
The light tube is a steel element which channels the light from outside to the chapel altar.
