A former restored slaughterhouse in Madrid offers space for a variety of culutural and creative activities, such as exhibitions that utilize defunct carcass-hanging hooks to display delicate pieces of art. We tackled the challenging budget set by Madrid’s city hall with and adaptable intervention that is based on a single material and structural feature. At the core of the concept for the vast space is a system of double-height steel pivoted doors that can be adjusted easily to meet the needs of the user. The battery of doors encloses a central rectangular space, enabling this area to be segregated from the rest of the hall. One possibility is a neutral void that is suitable for avant-garde installation art and projections. When opened, the set of doors connects the central area with the rest of the space, achieving full flexibility.
