A split town which can be reconnected for the pedestrian through two urban lifts and save a difference of level of more than 40 meters; work promoted by Ayuntamiento de Errenteria.
The project designed by VAUMM arkitektura manages to carry out an urban reconnection by means of two public lifts in the Alaberga quartier in Errentería, Guipuzkoa, built in the 60s. Due to a rugged topography, the town is divided in two with a difference in height of 40 meters. This reconnection puts the focus and intensity on controlling the perception of these two infrastructures that cross the hillside.
