The refurbishment of 'Tudor Jarda' School of Folk Art headquarters was an 18 months long planning process for the interventions on a 1912 building with a ca. 1970s extension. Due to the fact that the historic building was/is not listed as a monument the ensemble passed through a couple of mutilating stages. The project aims to uncover as much of the building’s essence as possible and to adapt it to its new program and its beneficiary’s needs.
New features were added such as, but not limited to (exterior to interior): a new fountain, better accessibility, a weather resistant steel pinion that marks the now inexistent limit between the historic building and the 70s addition, new vertical circulations, structural interventions at the attic level in order to support two new education spaces, a weather resistant steel clad ‘tower’ that hosts a new stair and attic HVAC systems.
