location San Sebastián
function museum
contributed by MI_MOA

The San Telmo Museum is housed in a former convent built in the mid-sixteenth century by Dominicans. Nieto Sobejano designed a contemporary extension next to the old monastery. Their intervention is two fold: first they remove the result of a long process of successive modifications on the old building. This way the physical and functional character of the historical building can be appreciated again. Secondly, they propose a new anex, in-between the Monte Urgull and the old building. This extension is not much more than a new green wall, defined by the existing topography. This new facade is a perforated metal skin, enveloped in plants which will blend the new architecture with the vegetation on the hill. The annex houses a new entrance, new areas for cloakrooms, shop, auditorium, media-room, didactic hall and cafeteria and 2 pavilions with temporary exhibitions.

Ephemeral says:
First I suggest visiting the city San Sebastian because it´s the most beautifull city of Spain and secondly I suggest that visit this nice museum.
