The proposed conversion of an old industrial building into a museum should be seen beyond the renewal and functional improvement, as it involves the change of use of the building and thus its urban role, social and cultural.
We maintained the architectural difficulty disused factory as a container, which once was rationally designed to include a manufacturing space, but now its new look, like a factory, but by generating ideas and not just any product, producing the opening and belonging to outer space for the urban and social fabric of the city.
The old structure has been re-interpreted during the design process as a large chest of drawers, which the new volumes have been drawn as if they were ideal containers for toys. The sharp contrast between the existing, carefully restored, and the new extension, understood as a contemporary expression is evident. It consolidated a new set, between conservation and renewal, function and imagination, able to get the right paper for a museum and becoming a landmark in the area.
Since the existing building, a cotton mill, 1900, suspending a new volume, which extends to cover the new public space. The functions (museum of toys, children’s library and theater) are arranged within the existing budget, bolstered by a giant order of concrete walls designed to reinforce the old factory and support the new volume.
