In the neighbourhood of Triana, in the back yard of some houses in Antillano Campos Street, some old pottery ovens had been conserved mainly for their ethnological value. The local government looked for ideas to transform the site into a new ceramics museum.
After clearing the surrounding area of the ovens, our project proposed the creation of a wide, partially-covered space, that will gather the three levels (the fireplaces, half buried in the ground, the domed ovens and their terraced roofs) making easier the tour along the new museum.
In the perimeter of this central, open space, conceived as the entry hall, refurbished houses and new built wings will accommodate the exhibition rooms, the auditorium and other facilities of the museum.
