Scope and Content

This project subseries documents the Casa Pátio building attached to the Edifício Zaida in Granada, Spain. While the records were held in the office’s archives this project was assigned the number 98/90 C. The office assigned the dates 1998-2006 to this project subseries.

This was phase 2 of the larger project to redevelop three parcels of land that faced the Plaza Puerta Real. This part of the larger Zaida building, an old courtyard house, was located between the Zaida building and neighbouring buildings. The exterior was reimagined in the style of the new Zaida building, but it was visually separated through its unique window arrangement.

Documenting this project subseries are drawings, textual records and photographic materials dating from 2003-2005. The textual records include correspondence and documentation on the design of furniture, accessories, artwork and the mechanical and techinical aspects of the buildings. The drawings include structural, mechanical and technical drawings, as well as details. The photographic materials show the building's construction and the built project.
