Rialto Living, Palma de Mallorca
Emblematic spaces need the best aesthetics, elegance and innovation. These features enhance the grandeur of a space and make visitors feel comfortable and encourage them to return again in the future.
The retail sector takes all these details into account, as well as customer service, natural and artificial lighting, shop window design, ventilation, background music and the spaciousness of communal areas. Any commercial space that wants to make an impact and attract customers must have the latest technology and the best brands.
One of the most emblematic projects Manusa has worked on is Rialto Living, located in an 18th-century baroque palace in Palma de Mallorca (Islas Baleares). It is a concept-store located in the heart of the city and was once the Rialto Cinema, one of the most outstanding and historical cinemas in the Mallorcan capital.
Rialto Living is a lifestyle concept store offering interior design, fashion, art, gifts and a café. In 2014 the space was doubled after a period of renovation and it was necessary to install several automatic doors that needed to perfectly match the environment of this important commercial space. The main entrance is located under a large vault, where an automatic sliding door with a transparent central opening and two framed fixed panels was installed. In addition, the building has a secondary entrance, where a side-opening transparent automatic sliding door with the Rialto Living logo was installed.
A very energy efficient building thanks to automatic doors
Thanks to these smart entrances, the flow of people is smoother, an important factor given that many of them have their hands full with bags or other belongings. In addition, energy efficiency also improves, because draughts are prevented from causing sudden changes in temperature.
