Built in 1928 under the direction of the architect Luis Alemany, the Palacio de la Trinidad, located in Calle Francisco Silvela, is one of the best examples of neo-regionalist architecture in the Sevillian style outside Seville.
Restoring all the green and white glazed tile roofs, reconstructing and structurally reinforcing its wooden eaves with large overhangs, redoing all the elements of its profusely decorated window frames, reworking the very elaborate balcony and window frames by renewing all its ceramic platforms, reinforcing the anchorages and restoring the large decorative pinnacles and completely recovering the traditional lime plastering of the building’s vertical faces, were some of the most important works carried out during the intervention. In addition, several structural actions have been carried out on the building to guarantee its stability and, on the other hand, drains have been installed on the perimeter of the enclosure walls of the plot to prevent their deterioration due to the action of water.
Restoration of wooden eaves and structural reinforcement.
Recovery of original lime plaster and decorative elements.
Repair of exposed ceramic tile balconies.
Main façade of the mansion.
In addition to restoring the original cladding and aesthetics of the buildings, it is often necessary to ensure the stability of the buildings by carrying out structural consolidation work.
In the case of the Palacete (mansion), we reinforced one of its pillars located at the corner of the main façade and the garden façade with a metal structure. Precisely because of its position, a shoring was carried out on the outside of the façade, so that the loads received by the pillar were transmitted by a load-bearing structure to solid ground. In this way, it was not necessary to carry out work on the inside of the building, which would have involved the dismantling of very complex wooden coffered ceilings and multiple decorative elements on several floors, until reaching the basement of the building.
