Restauración de Torre Nazarí / Castillo Miras Arquitectos

ARQUITECTO:MENCHU

 

A 13th century military defense tower in Spain -part of a larger fortress that has long since been destroyed, originally built by the Arab kingdom of Nazari during their rule in Spain- restored by Castillo Miras Arquitectos.

New additions to the old structure, a circular staircase -for the original entry is four meters off the ground-  and an information kiosk, both made as removable objects from cor-ten steel and placed directly onto the ground without foundations.
