Roca London Gallery opens

Zaha Hadid Architects and Roca announce the opening of the Roca London Gallery. The design takes inspiration from the power of water as a transforming element to carve a sequence of dynamic, porous spaces for the 1100m2 gallery. The flowing white central axis of the gallery leads to a number of smaller, semi-enclosed spaces in concrete. Fissures and slices in the walls give permeability throughout the gallery. This design theme of water extends to the façade, which appears as a set of ripples in movement across the exterior. The interior features audio-visual equipment allowing visitors to discover the company’s history, its landmark achievements and the values on which all of Roca’s work is based: the commitment to sustainability and particularly to innovation, design, wellness and saving water. Designed to be much more than just a display space, the Roca London Gallery will host exhibitions, meetings, presentations, seminars and debates.
