About the project

Year of design: 2014

Designers: Vanessa Fernández + Daniel Osorio + Rodrigo Jimenez

This academic project has as its mission the intervention of the patrimonial house of the teacher Pedro Nel Gómez.
At the beginning the house was configured for the private life of the artist and his family, later the studio and a workshop were built. The last intervention carried out turns the house into a museum, creating exhibition rooms where the artist's works are displayed. However, from the contact with the community, it is determined that there is a lack of space for interaction. That is why we decided to create, within the intervention program, a theater for cultural development, multipurpose rooms, and meeting rooms, among others, that would allow the community to appropriate the place. As it is an intervention on a heritage element, the analysis of its condition and the needs of the community becomes essential to find opportunities for projection.
