Swing Bowling, awarded at 35th BJI Architecture & Design Awards

Today is a great day for us! We are pleased to announce that Bowlers Journal's 35th BJI Architecture & Design Awards have awarded our bowling alley, Swing Bowling, as the best international interior renovation of the year


Deserved recognition for the work of the architects Cristina and María Elías Cabrera, from Room C Studio, who have led the renovation and design of the Holidayworld, which was launched a few months ago with a comprehensive and innovative change of image. 


Swing, which houses the only professional bowling alley in Gran Canaria and one of the restaurants of Holidayworld Maspalomas, has been designed with industrial airs, using wood and also metal structures, these being the real protagonists of the space. In this area there has been a commitment to add murals, signs and decoration, in which bowling has a great relevance and importance, and which makes a significant nod to the 50s that contribute to orchestrate a fun atmosphere while elegant. The Game Center is an eclectic space where styles of different stages are mixed, and in which the colours of the 1950s merge with arcade games as emblematic as the 'eats coconuts', so iconic in the 1980s. All this using the most advanced audiovisual technology, as Swing highlights a spectacular menuboard that allows customers to know all the gastronomic offer and services of the room.
