Roca London Gallery


It seems there’s no stopping London-based Zaha Hadid Architects.

Having recently completed the London Aquatics Centre for the 2012 Olympics and won the Stirling Prize for the design of a sports-themed secondary school in South London (complete with in-built running track – see previous thread), the practice has now designed a futuristic London showroom for Spanish bathroom manufacturer Roca.

Using the movement of water as inspiration, the undulating space has more in common with an art gallery than a conventional bathroom store. The walls of 1,100sq m showroom are sculpted from white concrete and state-of-the-art lighting and audio-visual equipment have been used to heighten the display of the company’s bathroom products.
