The new Port Adriano Marina in Mallorca by Philippe Starck is quite a sight to see. It’s almost invisible while pared down an elegant structure that is home to restaurants, bars, a car park, fashion and nautical stores, as well as a marina.
Starck was brought aboard by Antonio Zaforteza, owner of Ocibar, which is the island’s flourishing nautical-management company.
For the marina, Starck drew upon his intense dislike for onsite parking spaces, instead creating a structure that artfully concealed an underground car park below sea level. He created a clean, linear, two-level structure featuring concrete columns, topped off with a slatted wood roof and a striking staircase lit from beneath. Design details include street lights modelled on standing lamps, handsome numbered steel mooring plates and chic bollards.
The marina is located on the south-west bay of Palma de Mallorca, the capital of the Balearic Islands.
