The Cineteca Cinema Center was designed by Churtichaga+Quadra-Salcedo Architects. The awe-inspiring theatre space has been transformed from a former slaughterhouse into a cultural cinema space.

Refurbishing an abandoned factory, the Spanish design studio reinforced the building's existing structure and created a warm interior with the use of all-over wooden flooring elements.

Adding a visual focal point to the cinema space, basket-like elements feature a bent, steel-tubed construction and woven framing. These memorable sculptural elements are back-lit, standing out amongst the darkness of the building's dark surrounding interior.

The Cineteca Cinema Center is home to two large theatre spaces, a film archive, a film and television studio, offices, canteen and summer film patio making it the perfect addition to Madrid's hip and culture-infused Matadero neighbourhood.
