Text description provided by the architects. If we can see the moon as the main character of the night sky is due to the high contrast of light and shadow that occurs up there. Sa LLuna Club is located in the old town of Inca, Mallorca. The Project was to renew the club’s image that resides on the ground floor of a traditional mallorcan house.

The inability to touch the facade, and therefore can not be open to the street, makes the space self-enclosed area and have almost an obligation to create a scene and look to the old courtyard of the house, so far ignored, located in the back of the house.

The workspace is the result of the union of two annexes, done a few years ago. Therefore the project presents a common language to avoid the feeling of being in two environments and give just one image of the club. In this point appears the decision to move the bar from its original location and place it longitudinally to give more local perspective and gain more space for the several activities organized by the club.

The first reason why we decided to darken the space is due to the principle of contrast between light and shadow. The new elements assume a presence like the moon does in the sky, being the new benchmarks and lighting the space. Lluna is a catalan word that in english means “moon”, so we just took an abstract reference to imagine the new space without falling in platitudes.

The second reason meets the need to highlight the two existing stone arches to give the importance they deserve and to keep the reminiscence of the past. Finally the courtyard will be used as a new benchmark in the horizon, giving center stage to the old water well and creating a new contrast between light and shadow, what is new and what is traditional.
