Catalan Delight: Vacant Community Center Finds New Life Entwined with its Past
We often harp on about how adaptive reuse of structures is a great way to save both time and resources. But there are times when you need not adapt the building into something different; a masterful revival of the old structure can give the forgotten space a new lease of life. This is precisely what one gets with the stunningly redone Sala Beckett in Barcelona. A forgotten and neglected community center that was once the heart of social activity in the Poblenou neighborhood, its latest avatar combines the old with the new in a truly captivating manner. Renovated by Flores & Prats, the new interior feels both welcoming and vivacious.
