Aiete Park is a historic landmark in Sebastian, Spain, but it's recently been making news because of a modern upgrade by Isuuru Architects.

In facing the daunting task of renovating a classic architectural icon, Isuuru Architects walks a fine line between new and old. Somehow, this architectural firm manages to effectively convey and preserve both sensibilities with this bold, but fitting addition to the park.

Implications - Back in the 19th century, the Spanish palace was created as a place for royalty to escape. Today, it is home of the Human Rights Institute. The construction will fix up the palace and turn it into a modern-day beauty with long history. The featured images show off the amazing renovations that include a glorious, green-glassed space that is underground.
