During August, coinciding with the Olympic Games, we are highlighting some of Ferrovial’s records. This time we urge you to visit another impressive project, Platea, the biggest leisure and gourmet centre in Europe.

Platea is located in Madrid where it is home to Ramón Freixa’s Arriba restaurant with its two Michelin stars and can accommodate 1,200 people who come to enjoy gastronomy and culture at the same time in its 5,800 square metres. Three years of works have been required to transform the former Carlos III cinemas into one of Madrid’s benchmark culinary centres with around fifteen thematic micro-premises and a wide offer for cocktails and other drinks.

But that’s not all. Thanks to the strategically placed giant screens the visitor can enjoy a wide variety of shows from any part of the facility: live music, the scenic arts, aerial dance, micro-cabaret… that differentiate this venue from any other location in the city with similar aims.

Transformation of Platea, a new life for the Carlos III cinemas

The transformation included partial restructuring, refurbishment, restoration and general implementation of the commercial facilities of Platea, respecting the original form of the space and using its visual effect in a spectacular fashion.

The rehabilitation was carried out respecting the original structure and the protected components by developing a new structure around the former cinema’s circle. The interior architecture plays with the depth, using the light-tones of the timber cladding to enhance the former cinema screen area where there is now a stage, around which the other spaces – the pit and stalls – are arranged, with the restaurant on the upper floor.
