Las Arenas is one of six shortlisted projects in the inaugural World Architecture News Adaptive Re-use Award.
The project places a retail and leisure development within the circular brick facade of an historic Bullring in Barclona.
The judges commented on the quality of the building and agreed that this large project had fabulous detailing. To Paul Williams, it was the ‘quality and immaculate steelwork’ combined with the existing facade as a ‘brick necklace’ that made it worthy of the shortlist.
The award was won by Opus 5 architectes for the Music School Louviers, Normandy, France.
