Architect: Maite Sainz de la Maza Benet. Fetdeterra
Geological engineer: Macari de Torres. Fetdeterra
Renovation wineries Castell del Remei with the new ERODIBLE TAPIALBLOCK, controlled erosion earth block to get full integration with the texture of the existing rammed earth wall.
The methodology used in this restoration, consisted of the characterization of the earth and the formulation of the new material, and the development of an Erodible Tapialblock, where controlled erosion was applied until having the same texture as the original wall, with total integration of the material into the wall, which allows the elimination of materials introduced in old restorations, such as ceramic blocks or cement mortars, to avoid possible pathologies and recover the original image and aesthetics of the rammed earth walls.
