Text description provided by the architects. Spanish practice Andres Jaque Arquitectos shared with us this great renovation in Plasencia, transforming an old and abandoned seminary into a residence for former priests and students.

Catholic Church has defined historically territory superposing two occupation structures:

1. - Ideological structure, tree vertexed at the Vatican.

2. - Points of direct action, bishopric-nodes in an interconnected network.

This implantation pattern has ruled both social relationships and territory insertion of the individual members of the Church.

Clerical population in Europe has experienced a fast process of aging making it difficult the maintenance of an individualized attention model. Concentration of welfare services demand from the priests seglares a reconstruction of their relationship with territory and their insertion in a community. the project is the device that articulates this transformation by means of the activation of a set of:

WORKS / rehabilitation 15th century building , rehabilitation 19th century building , 21st century building , parking , garden , roof garden . Total 5262m2.

POPULATION/priests until this moment at different parishes from the diocese of Plasencia . Relatives, companions, assistants, visitors.
