Default Canarian Weekly: Architects bowled over by the Adeje Plaza de Espa?a

ADEJE?S Plaza de Espa?a has scooped top prize in the Canarian ?Manuel de Or?a y Arcocha 2008-2017 architecture awards, in the landscape and public-space category.

The prize is for the plaza?s projection as a reference point in both modernity and the preservation of local heritage.

It is awarded by the Official School of Architecture of Tenerife, La Gomera and El Hierro, and is dedicated to recognising work in creating spaces that respect and emphasise the worth of local heritage and natural resources.

The Plaza de Espa?a does just that, flanked by the Convento de San Francisco on one side, the Santa ?rsula Martir church on the other, and with the awe-inspiring Barranco del Infierno as a backdrop.

Each one is a recognised point of cultural and natural interest, with the Plaza designed to enhance each feature.

The renovation and redesign of the Plaza de Espa?a was the work of Tenerife architect Fernando Mart?n Menis (Estudio Menis Arquitectos), who is also responsible for the Magma & Congresos building.

These two structures have become focus points in the borough for different groups and events, as well as viewpoints in their own right.

The Plaza de Espa?a is 1,182sq/m with a 446sq/m stage space and a garden zone. Work on the renovation and redesign was carried out in 2009 and 2010, financed by the Plan E2009 and Plan E2010.

Since reopening, it has helped revitalise local businesses and become a popular centre for events and public get-togethers.

A few years ago, the plaza also chalked up a win in the World Architecture Festival New & Old section, in the Public Space category.
