Description MEDIALAB-PRADO CENTRE
The Belgian Sawmill has been awarded a renovation prize from the XII Spanish Biennial of Architecture and Urbanism: the 2013 COAM Award, and the 2014 Sacyr Award for Innovation, in the Construction Project category.
Renovation of the former Belgian Sawmill of Madrid, which houses the Medialab-Prado headquarters, is based on a design aesthetic that is light and versatile. The hub of stairs that connects the two buildings is coated with a double membrane of fibreglass with silicone. This material allows for a smooth passage of light, which, together with the lighting system, provides a truly unique lighting effect. There are 51 ETFE double layer cushions fastened onto the existing metallic roof structure.
