Conversion of a heritage site into a mixed-use project

This master plan is the result of an urbanistic and financial feasibility study that seeks to provide a sustainable and quality solution to this abandoned school site, taking into account its historic architectural value.

The study comprises, among other things:

  • a feasibility study per built element;
  • the definition of the elements to be razed, renovated or built;
  • the definition of the allocation of the different elements;
  • the study of different scenarios by taking into account heritage aspects as well as sustainability and financial feasibility.


The mission also includes the development of the selected scenario:

  • definition of the surfaces and estimation of the construction, renovation and restoration costs;
  • reduction of the technical risks (by estimating demolition costs, asbestos removal, soil tests, archaeology, etc.);
  • appraisal of the sales price.


The mission then continued as an architecture mission, making it possible to convert former buildings into offices, a restaurant and dwellings, and to build 9 houses with a wooden structure and 10 apartments.
