Sacred museum and plaza espana rehabilitation – DesignBoom



Tenerife-based practice menis arquitectos has completed the ‘sacred museum and plaza de espana’ renovation abutting a cliff in adeje, spain. the new project not only widens the existing plaza de españa by 2.5 times, but also creates spaces below it used for community activities and the sacred museum of adeje. sitting as a reinforced concrete sculpture in the landscape in combination with basalt floor tiles, the structure blends into its natural context with a playful array of platforms and levels which create stages and look-out points to the ‘barranco del infierno’ for the public to enjoy and host events year-round. a tower erects from the construction as a collision of planes, creating a visual beacon and defining part of the museum.
