Renovation of Herrerías area, Logroño

Client: Municipality of Logroño

In association with Joaquín Lizasoain and Javier Puldain.

How could we create a promenade to the River Ebro, guided by the monuments, observing the hierarchy of the medieval framework? How can we solve the dilemma of whether to open a street or preserve the elongated Gothic block?

A street that extends directly from San Bartolomé Church, too wide, would only lead to the dead-end of the Palace wall, creating a square that is too long. 

We proposed a chamfer, one of those secondary alleys that connect two streets without the façades of the houses on either side facing it. An opening that crosses the block of Herrerías without it losing its unity. A typical mechanism of the Medieval City.
