The most recent Roca Gallery to be opened is in London. Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, the Roca London Gallery is located in Chelsea Harbour and is 1,100 m2 in size.
The leading role is played by the water that, in the words of Zaha Hadid, “acts as a transformer moving, without interruption, through the façade, carving the interior and flowing through the main gallery as drops of water”.
The façade has a series of openings that seek to show the effect of water erosion and a white interior filled with drops of light acting as the backbone of the Roca London Gallery.
These drops of water connect the different areas of the space which are part of the Roca London Gallery itself; namely an exhibition of Roca’s most innovative products, the meeting room and the multimedia space, amongst others.
Additionally, the interior features the latest technologies which combine with modern audiovisual, sound and lighting equipment to transport the visitor to a truly cutting- edge space.
Roca is dedicated to the design, production, sales and marketing of bathroom products as well as ceramic wall and floor tiles for the architecture, building and interior design sectors. The company employs over 20,200 people, has 72 production plants and is active in more than 135 countries spread across 5 continents.
As world leader in the definition of the bathroom space, Roca works closely with prestigious designers, architects and interior designers such as Moneo, Chipperfield, Herzog & de Meuron, Benedito, Giugiaro and Schmidt & Lackner, to name just a few. Through constant research and development, Roca promotes initiatives which help protect the environment. This commitment is reflected in the continuous development of new products designed to reduce water consumption.
