On 31 March, we were startled by the death of the extraordinary Anglo-Iraqi architect, Zaha Hadid. Hadid’s work will certainly go down in the annals of architecture and her mark will distinguish forever those places where she left her legacy.
In Spain, Zaha Hadid had 3 projects: the Saragossa bridge pavilion; the annexe to Bodegas Viña Tondonia in Haro (La Rioja); and the Euskotren station in Durango (Biscay). Spigogroup had the honour of participating in the construction of one of them: the wineshop and tasting rooms at Viña Tondonia built to commemorate its 125th anniversary.
We like the special wood projects and even more so, when it means participating in a project by Zaha Hadid. It was the year 2006, when Hadid had already become the first woman to win the Pritzker Prize. So we already knew the special moment that we were living.
We participated in the the building’s ceilings, manufacturing approximately 200 m² of Spigotec accessible ceilings, model Leo 32, with oak veneer finish, in 600 x 600 mm plates installed using the fineline T-15 mounting system. We were commissioned to supply many other woodwork elements manufactured by our Spigodoor (technical doors) and Spigotec (cladding) divisions, as well as other complementary elements required in this project, including shelves, furniture, etc.
Spigogroup has taken part in dozens of special wood projects but some we particularly remember because of their significance. This is one of them.
