Project Description

SFJ2

Our aim with this piece was to try and make a modern and contemporary table yet maximizing the yield out of the old beams used as raw material.
When working with salvaged beams from demolished houses, before we can start with some actual joinery, we need to extract the nails within one by one, which requires some digging and drilling. The ends of the beam, which usually rest in the walls of the house and suck up moisture, need to be chopped off and a fair amount of superficial wood needs to be removed too due to the wear suffered over decades, even centuries of service.
Long story short, just half of the original beam is normally usable.
In this table all structural items are made with “healthy” timber coming from the core of the beam, whereas the “peels” are used for an aesthetic purpose and showcased behind a large glass insert.
Both legs are dismountable for transport.

    STORY

    Around April 2019 we got the chance to access this monumental Baroque House from the XVIII century, at nr 11 Calle San Francisco Javier. The property’s backyard was adjacent to the Hospital de Mujeres. It is the most notorious institution in this area of town and thereupon this city quarter was named after it.

    The building is one of the most spectacular ones we have visited so far and luckily we got the chance to get some professional pics during our 2 visits. We were able to salvage up to 60 beams in sound condition in a varied set of formats and colours.

    The main façade of the building is a 7 axis composition with a centered foyer. Cornices and fabulous imposts carved in stone add a classy touch.

    As we enter the place we walk into an imposing patio paved in Tarifa stone with a water reservoir well (moorish Aljibe) in mint condition placed in the center of it.

    The arched staircase takes us to a circular gallery that is supported by a sturdy beam structure and looks into the patio in each of the 3 levels. Hallways paved in marble, artistic moulding decorated ceiling vaults and abundant ornamental features on the walls are a clear sign of the sophistication of this noble delling.
