Located on the waterfront overlooking the bay, the building doesn't touch the ground, instead it rests on columns at the height of the tree tops in Pereda Gardens. Fully integrated within its surroundings, this elevation is what allows light to pass trough, offering views of the bay. Centro Botín is composed of two volumes connected by a structure of squares and walkways, called the Pachinko. The west volume is dedicated to art with two exhibition spaces totaling 2.500 square meters ; and the east volume, devised for cultural learning activities, includes an auditorium for 300 people, classroom, work spaces and a roof terrace from which unique views of Santander and its bay can be enjoyed. Located in a privileged place in Santander, Centro Botín has succeeded in joining the centre of the city and the historic Pereda Gardens to the bay, by means of an extensive urban development plan.
