Project Area: 3,649.88 sqm Structures: CRACK Ingeniería Catalana SL Installations: REOLID Consulting Budget: € 5,067,605 Cala Ratjada is a small seaside town located in the north-east of the island of Mallorca. It was set out as a rectangular extension and contains mainly residential buildings. The new Cultural Centre is situated in the heart of this new extension in an area where century-old pine trees give special character to the land.

Both the microclimatic conditions of the zone and its Mediterranean nature inspired the proposal: a building with an irregular silhouette and a front facade whose recesses and indentations provide personality as well as a degree of shade.
