Port Adriano by Philippe Starck
Situated in the municipality of Calvià, Port Adriano is located on the south-west of the bay of Palma de Mallorca, the capital of the Balearic Islands. Since it was built in 1992, Port Adriano is the reference point to explore one of the most attractive coasts in the Mediterranean. It has grown to currently become one of the most relevant ports in the Balearic Islands. It has 404 moorings of between 6 and 18 meters in length, a refit and repair area and 4.500 Sq. Mts. of commercial area. Port Adriano offers the best conditions for bathing and also for practising nautical activities, this together with the quality of its services and its proximity to Palma de Mallorca, make it an excellent home port for owners and crews. Port Adriano has a shopping area of over 4,000 m2, 40 business premises and over 600 parking places, to complement its nautical facilities.
Its remodelling has involved the addition of new mooring berths for yachts of up to 60 metres, the enlarging of the dry dock and the singular project of the commercial area designed by Philippe Starck. The creator has placed the human and the sea in the center of the project, which includes overall town planning, architectural design, and artistic direction of public spaces as well as special creations such as mooring poles. All this places Port Adriano in the forefront of ports for mega-yachts. Port Adriano will fully re-open in spring 2012.
