This cultural centre is placed in the heart of the old town, in the protected environment of the San Nicolas cathedral, on the 'El Claustro' square. The old town is an strategic point for social and cultural life of the city. During the day, it's one of the most touristic and gastronomic places, visited not only for its bohemian atmosphere but also for its historical value. At night, it becomes the main leisure point of the city. The place where every citizen of Alicante meet each other in a continuous mass of people, terraces, pubs, bars and restaurants. The Clautro square was a deep-set urban space. Where the San Nicolas itself was open at the same level. This is a building-square at street level. A stony square, according to the surroundings materials and weight. This stone ground breaks itself and raises to build the upper floor roof. That makes visible the vitreous inner core, which is always surrounded by metal sheet.
