Sacred Family of the Bauma
Conservation and restoration of stained glass since 1923
In this modernist church of the architect Alexandre Soler i March in the textile colony of Castellbell i el Vilar, some musical angles were preserved fragmentarily. The initial conservation project for the 3 windows led to a much more complex project involving other parts of the building. Finally, the 3 central windows were restored using the symmetries between the windows to mimetically reproduce the missing parts. The apse was completed with the figure of 2 contemporary angels clearly distinguishable from the original part and the façade was completed with an abstract composition. The objective was to achieve a serene atmosphere, which would facilitate the meditation of all those who visit the temple.
