This Final Degree Project proposes the refurbishment of the former CLESA factory in Madrid by proposing the implementation of new uses. Facing a building with an architectural imprint like that of CLESA is no easy task. In contrast to the hackneyed strategies that promote the conversion of this type of building into cultural centres, Raúl’s proposal is tremendously intelligent, as it implements a secular necropolis in which the tombs are replaced by vegetation.
In addition, he is able to highlight one of the most characteristic elements of the building: the use of light, which will bathe the new garden, creating different differentiated burial areas. This sensibility of the student appears in the images illustrating the project, in which the interiors show all their spatial qualities.
