Diocesan Museum of Lleida


Joan Rodons Arquitectes Associats
Lleida - 2007

The Diocesan Museum of Lleida is located in a central, vital area of the city between the crossing of the old city and the new extension of the Rambla de Aragón. The new building is a response to the merging of modern and old contrasts. Architecturally, the building is based on multiple volumes joined by a common platform, where the Carmelitas convent was previously located.

The project has combined the requirements of a contemporary building as a museum with a strong historic character and has kept all the old parts such as the façade on Calle Lluis Besa y Sant Crist. The Museum used the Cartesio range for work furniture and cabinet walls for the fitted walls.

Simple, functional furniture
Work furniture from the Cartesio range was used for the Museum's office areas, with a lacquered metal structure in white and bi-laminated white tops.
Working in white
Contrasting with the dark colours of the flooring, the predominant colour in the interior is white, for example on the legs of the desks, the worktops and the upholstery on the chairs.
