Toni Catany International Photography Center in Llucmajor (Mallorca)

Mateo Arquitectura 


The outcome of a competition held in 2018, this winning project of the studio led by Josep Lluís Mateo encompasses a built area of 1,200 square meters, which partially occupies the house where the photographer Tony Catany was born in the historic center of Llucmajor, in the Comarca of Migjorn (Mallorca). The project for the center which harbors and displays the oeuvre of Tony Catany (1942-2013), a key figure in Spanish photography, considers the history, the scale, and the traditional typology of houses closed to the exterior and open to courtyards, where different elements such as the facade or a cantilevered staircase have been rebuilt or restored, creating a new large and flexible space.
