KALAM Video Presentation

We have now updated our video presentation, incorporating some notable recent projects along with our firm’s international growth in the past few years.

We’d like to take advantage of Christmastime to share this with our team and with all the professionals who have been fellow travelers on this journey.

The presentation reviews the heritage and historic buildings on which we have had the privilege to work, including sequences describing specialized projects such as the holistic rehabilitation we are performing for the Spanish heritage agency on the “Casa del Labrador” in the Royal Site of Aranjuez, a World Heritage Cultural Landscape.

Also included are rehabilitations and restorations of the kind that we undertake habitually in the historic centers of cities such as Toledo, Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Valencia, or Lisbon on residential, hotel, cultural, educational, institutional, commercial, or office buildings. These include iconic sites such as the complex of Spain’s first Four Seasons Hotel, the Círculo de Bellas Artes cultural center or the Bank of Spain in Madrid, along with contemporary or industrial buildings such as our restoration of the former Ombú plant, or other historic buildings such as those that make up our townscapes.

We also offer updated details of our international growth, in which we maintain KALAM’s vision and commitment to quality and safety in the work we do as well as to sustained growth in markets that appreciate our specialist expertise. The projects featured include the remodeling of the library of the famed Pompidou Center in Paris, ongoing comprehensive rehabilitations of buildings in downtown Lisbon, or work in Chile for the public sector and institutions, such as restorations of the Church of the Holy Sacrament or of the Pereira Palace, both in central Santiago, along with other projects for the private sector on schools and colleges, hotels or offices. In the US our growth has continued with restoration and rehabilitation projects in the historic district of Brooklyn or downtown Manhattan in New York, or on the Royal Thai Pavilion in the Botanical Gardens of Madison, Wisconsin, among others, along with the project that we are to start early next year in Fifth Avenue.

To contribute to the dissemination of the materials and contents that KALAM generates in connection with its work on historic buildings and cultural heritage, we have also included details of publications, specialist training workshops and outreach initiatives concerning traditional trades and crafts, along with the International Scientific Symposium on Safety in Heritage that we held in Madrid, the outcomes of which may be viewed on this site.

Hoping that this review of some of our projects and the updated information provided are of interest to the practitioners and clients with whom we work, we take the opportunity to raise a glass for the New Year and to wish you a Happy Festive Season!
