Edifício Zaida [Zaida Building and Courtyard House], Granada, Spain (1998-2006)
This project series documents the Edifício Zaida Habitação e Comércio in Granada, Spain. While the records were held in the office’s archives this project was assigned the number 98/90. The office assigned the dates 1998-2006 to this project. The project was divided in three components, each represented in the following project subseries: the Zaida building (AP178.S1.1998.PR03.SS1), the Caja Rural de Granada (AP178.S1.1998.PR03.SS2) and the Casa Pátio (AP178.S1.1998.PR03.SS3).
The project, realized with local architect Juan Domingo Santos, redeveloped three ajacent parcels of land that faced the Plaza Puerta Real. This included the demolition of the nineteenth century Zaida Hotel that existed on the site and the incorporation of an existing nineteenth century courtyard style home (Casa Pátio). The project was built in two phases, beginning with the Zaida building in phase 1 and continuing with the Casa Pátio in phase 2. The Zaida building was six-storeys with commerical and office spaces on the first three levels and residential dwellings on the upper three. The two bottom floors of the building's exterior were constructed from grey stone, while the top four storeys were white stucco. The bank branch Caja Rural de Granada was located on the ground level of the building. While the architect sought to save and preserve the Casa Pátio, eventually it had to be reinterpretted and attached to the main volume. It was integrated with the main building using the same white stucco exterior.
Materials in this project series were arranged in three subseries by Álvaro Siza’s office and have been kept in this order:
