French designer Philippe Starck has completed the renovation of a former wine cellar in Bilbao to create a new culture and leisure centre for the city. It comprises three main buildings within the existing structure, which was originally constructed in 1909. The old and modernist wine warehouse was declared 'Public Property of Cultural Interest' by the Basque Government in 1999. A 6.000m2 indoor plaza on the ground floor is punctuated by 43 pillars that support the three new buildings: a media library, complimentary activities centre and physical education complex. The centre includes leisure areas, cinemas, an exhibition hall, a theatre, shops, restaurants and an auditorium. The centre includes leisure areas, cinemas, an exhibition hall, a theatre, shops, restaurants and an auditorium. Under the Gran Plaza is a basement that houses cinemas, exhibition spaces and a theatre for four-hundred spectators.
