COVERING THE HEIGHTS

On the structural restoration of the Convent of San Francisco de Estepa (Seville)

The Convent of the Franciscan brothers of Estepa is located at the top of the municipality, on the hill of San Cristóbal. Possibly it is the highest of all the surrounding territory.
The complex project consists of the structural consolidation of the convent’s heritage building. For this, the traditional way of building roofs at such high levels is studied. Wind stability must be guaranteed and must be respectful of the heritage context in which it is located.
