The Roca Galleries are buildings which express Roca’s will, as the leading company in the market, to maintain a constant dialogue with society and to create a knowledge exchange platform with professionals from the worlds of architecture, interior design and management as well as those disciplines related to innovation or sustainability.
With the four basic cornerstones of design, innovation, wellbeing and sustainability, the Roca Galleries in Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon, London, Shanghai and Beijing have been conceived by some of the most prestigious architectural studios in the world. They are spaces in which the “Roca Solutions” exhibition coexists with an extensive programme of exhibitions and conferences held throughout the year and they have become authentic cultural reference points in the cities in which they are situated.
Roca Barcelona Gallery
Created by the Carlos Ferrater’s prestigious OAB studio and inaugurated in 2009, Roca Barcelona Gallery was the first experience of a brand building conceived by Roca to reflect its philosophy and values.
This impressive space, whose façade is made entirely of glass, manages to create surprising visual effects during the day while at night the LED lights installed below the structure give the façade a unique character which grabs the attention of passers-by.
Roca Madrid Gallery
The fruit of a collaboration with the Estudio Lamela Arquitectos, Roca Madrid Gallery was inaugurated in 2011. It is a building with 1,200 m2 spanning two floors and is the result of a historic building being converted into an innovative exhibition space.
The interior combines aesthetics with functionality in an interactive space equipped with tools which allow visitors to interact with the building and have an authentic brand experience.
Roca Lisboa Gallery
Located in a former mansion dating back to 1909, Roca Lisboa Gallery was a project led by the interior design studio Ferruz Decoradors, which converted this historic building in the Portuguese capital into an innovative space open to the city.
In its four storeys visitors can view the latest products on display and enjoy a complete visual and interactive experience related to the world of the bathroom space. They can also participate in the varied programme of exhibitions and activities held throughout the year.
Roca London Gallery
Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects and located in the heart of Chelsea, Roca London Gallery opened its doors in 2011.
The site offers an experience combining Roca’s historic legacy with its culture of innovation. More than creating a gallery solely conceived to exhibit products, Zaha Hadid developed a flexible space for Roca in which the exhibition zones, meeting rooms and reception area are distributed through the space so that visitors feel they are in an active design space, a research hub which is much more than a showroom.
Roca Shanghai Gallery
The result of a collaboration with the Francesc Rifé Studio, Roca Shanghai Gallery was inaugurated in 2013 in the Xuhui District, the city’s centre for business. This spectacular building with irregular-shaped glass was designed to make an impact from the street and plays with the concepts of day and night.
During daylight hours the interior is revealed to invite people to discover it and when night falls translucent screens project images outwards so that the façade interacts with passers-by.
Roca Beijing Gallery
Roca Beijing Gallery opened its doors in 2017. It was designed by the award-winning Chinese architect Ma Yansong and its architecture firm Mad Architects. It is the company’s second Gallery in China after Roca Shanghai Gallery.
This 850m2 space features very peculiar large LED screens stretching up the building’s two stories and creating a second facade that draws everyone’s attention.
