Fuengirola is to get a new theatre and cultural centre with the award of an exciting new project that is set to revitalise the town

The creation of the new five-floor cultural facility project has been awarded to the temporary business union (UTE) Getinsa + Verdasco Arquitectos.

Fuengirola’s Mayor, Ana Mula, has announced that the temporary business union (UTE) Getinsa + Verdasco Arquitectos has been awarded the drafting of the project for the creation of the new theatre and cultural centre.

The award comes after a delay of several months, caused by an objection raised by another bidder that was later dismissed by the Administrative Court of Contractual Appeals (TARC) of the Junta de Andalucía.

“This is an ambitious and avant-garde design according to the idea of an emblematic project. It is very much in line with the dynamic image of the ‘New Fuengirola’, so it will reinforce not only the commitment to a culture that already distinguishes the town but also to add value to the Fuengirola brand with which we are recognised inside and outside our municipality,” said Mula.

Architect Cristóbal Pérez’s winning design will be used to construct the sustainable and energy-efficient facility with materials such as GRC (glass fibre reinforced concrete). The five-floor facility will feature a 400-seat theatre that can be divided into two auditoriums, along with exhibition halls, classrooms and communal spaces. The theatre and cultural centre will be built on a 1,300 square metre plot of land currently occupied by the town’s museum.
