San Telmo Museum by Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos

The San Telmo Museum’s architectural expansion project was designed by Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos, architect duo, Fuensanta Nieto and Enrique Sobejano. Nieto and Sobejano are architect graduates from Escuela Téchica Superior de Arquitectura in Madrid and the GSAP Columbia University in New York, USA. Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos have been internationally recognized for the design of the contemporary extension added onto the San Telmo Museum’s original building. Nieto and Sobejano worked along side artists Leopoldo Ferrán and Agustina Otero who created a semi-plant wall covering the building with a perforated steel sheets. Moss is expected to grow on the perforated steel skin that engulfs the museums exterior. How beautiful will the exterior look once more of the moss starts to grow!

The  San Telmo Museum’s contemporary extension contains galleries for temporary exhibitions as well as an auditorium, library, teaching areas, cloakroom, shop and cafeteria.
