Misturas finishes the refurbishment and fitting works of Pavilion XII of the Casa de Campo in Madrid
Last August, Misturas finished the refurbishment and fitting works of Pavilion XII of the Convention Center of the Casa de Campo in Madrid. It is a singular two-story building constructed in 1965 as an exhibition pavilion for the National Institute of Industry, intended for the exhibitions of heavy machinery, which was originally designed by architect Francisco Belosillo. It is currently managed by the public company “Madrid Destino Cultura, Turismo y Negocio, S.A.”, owned by the local Council of the capital city.
The works executed were aimed at restoring the original spaces and structure of the historic pavilion, as a previous stage to the implementation of new uses. For this purpose, the fitting of the coverings was carried out, thus removing the fiber-cement coating and recovering the waterproofing of the original stone. The pergolas and spaces added to the main building were also removed, as well as the obsolete boards and installations that concealed the original structure of the building. An area for terraces and arcades was also recovered, thus freeing the ground floor from the enclosing elements which hid the openness of the original spaces, which were then ready for new activities. In the future, the building is intended to house the headquarters of the Municipal Symphonic Band of Madrid.
