Rehabilitation of Former Prison of Palencia as Cultural Civic​ Center / Exit Architects

Remodelling this "neomudéjar" style prison must have been a tough enterprise. Its grey walls and shadowy passageways have turned in a widely open building. "The former Palencia Provincial Prison complex was created at the end of the XIX century", writes Victoria King for Arch Daily, "built with brick bearing walls following the “neomudéjar” style, and composed mainly of four two-storey wings and some other with one storey. On this building was planned a comprehensive refurbishment to transform the former use and convert it into a center that promotes the social and cultural activity in this part of the town".

As architects  Ángel Sevillano and José Mª Tabuyo, from Exit Architects, say: "Our proposal intends to convert the former prison into a meeting place, recovering some of the old spaces, and creating at the same time new structures that make possible the new planned activities. It is a project that respects the existing building, which is given a contemporary, lighter appearance, and where the natural light will play a key role".

Marbella sees an increase in applications for opening licences

According to an article published in Sur In English.com, a total of 88 applicantions for opening licences were processed in Marbella between December 2011 and January 2012, 70 per cent were for new premises and the remaninder for businesses which had undergone a change in ownership. This shows that, in spite of the economical crisis, Marbella is still a safe value.

This figure is 50 per cent higher than in the same period of the previous year, the Town Hall’s Commerce department confirmed. “What this reveals is that the small business sector remains active in Marbella. Even though many businesses have been forced to cease trading, almost immediately another one opens up, either in the same premises or somewhere else", says the councillor José Eduardo Díaz.
