Gordailua: EUN knowledge for conservation of heritage

The installation stands out because of the use of mobile mesh systems that optimise the use of space and offer great protection to the objects. They are dustproof and vibration free avoiding damage to the painting.

Gordailua is the Heritage Collections Centre of the Gipuzkoa Provincial Council. The building will house and store all those works belonging to public art, ethnographic, and archaeologic collections not exhibited in museums. This way, it is like a “bunker” that manages to provide optimal storage conditions for these works.

EUN provided storage systems adapted to the needs of the client for the conservation of the works. The use of meshes, made according to the highest standard of security and that can be either fixed or removable was decided to cover the neds of the client. The walls were protected with steel panels on three sides to avoid the entry of particles, and the individual drawers have blocking systems against unauthorised access. All that, with precision control of the temperature and humidity.

The EUN team is in permanent contact with the centre to adapt to the constant evolution of the Gordailua.  There is a continuous flow of objects, making it necessary to constantly optimise the storage spaces.
