The MIC is a strategically important facility for the urban regeneration of this part of the city, functioning as an incubator for creative and cultural undertakings. Occupying a former mansion house from the 15th century (of which only the structural walls remained) in the Mouraria neighbourhood, the renovation sought to conserve the original morphology and character. The most prominent elements of the building were recovered, such as the stairways and wooden structures, and contemporary materials were introduced to explore the natural lighting potential and create a clear contrast between new and old.
