Sala Equis是坐落在Duque de Alba老电影院内的一系列集合空间。这座电影院自2016年起就一直处于闲置状态，后来，位于电影院旁边的文化综合体El Imparcial（包括餐厅、设计商店和艺术画廊等）的开发商La Cultural Contemporánea提议为这间电影院赋予全新的概念。该项目在传统电影院的基础上增加了许多活动空间，可以用于举办现场音乐会、马戏表演、演讲展示、会议以及各类展览，同时还会在不同区域为使用者提供饮料和食物。
Sala Equis is a set of spaces collected in the structure of the old cinema Duque de Alba. This had fallen into disuse since the closure in 2016 of room X that occupied it. La Cultural Contemporánea, promoter of El Imparcial, restaurant, publications and design shop, and art gallery located in the annex to the cinema, wanted to turn it into a new concept of cinema. The idea encompassed the traditional version of the cinema together with other activities around this main function. Live music, circus performances, presentations, conferences or exhibitions are also possible, all accompanied by the drink and food that is served in the different areas.
Poses has shaped this concept. Where there was a room with an amphitheater for 300 people, with a small ambigu and an entrance through a passage under El Imparcial, there are now four different spaces. The existing gallery has been transformed into a multifunctional space, illuminated during the day by the large skylight open on the roof. On the screen, located where the original, there is a continuous projection, but during the week there are other activities, especially live music. Under the screen is the bar and the small kitchen of the bar, and in front of it, the public sitting in the stands of plywood board, the fixed benches of iron pipe and cushions, the hammocks of pine and canvas or the swings of 11 meters high, arranged as a small public square with the screen and the bar as attention centers.

The old amphitheater has been converted into a movie theater for 64 people, completely covered in dark earth velvet and equipped with the best sound and projection systems. The running benches and the auxiliary tables provide carefreeness and comfort, compared to traditional cinema.

Next to this room, the old ambigú has taken on the air of a cocktail bar, collected in a darker atmosphere, in which to be able to abstract from the movement of the plaza below.

The access passage is now a place with a bench and tables, as an intermediate space between the street and the inner square, where to wait for friends or find out about the proposals of the interior.

设计团队对于空间环境的处理涵盖了广场和走廊的自然衔接、旧建筑的裸露墙壁与新工业材料的结合、以及电影院和红色放映厅的气氛营造等。与Rent a Garden合作设计的植物景观元素为投影广场赋予了一丝“户外”气息；同时，旧式美国影院的标识则为空间带来一种经典的调性。
Plantea has designed environments ranging from the spontaneity of the square and the passageway, with industrial materials combined with the bare walls of the old structure, to the sophistication of the cinema and the ambigú, dominated by velvet and red lights that tint the atmosphere and the public. The vegetation, projected in collaboration with Rent a Garden, brings character of ‘exterior’ to the square, and the signs, in the manner of the old American cinemas, return a classic tone to the concept.

The intention has been to provide the available space with current uses with current materials and furniture, always in balance with the memory of the existing. The construction has been carried out with Payser, responsible for the reform of other successful premises in Madrid, including El Imparcial.
