The SAHMB workshop will be held at the Palacio de Miramar, a palace created for Queen María Cristina and the royal family, when she chose to have her official summer residence in San Sebastián in 1887.

The palace was built in the "Queen Anne English cottage" style under the direction of English architect Seldon Wornum, who also designed palaces in Biarritz and Saint Jean de Luz in France. Its gardens are the handiwork of master gardener Pierre Ducasse, who also designed the gardens of San Sebastián's Palacio de Aiete and Plaza Gipuzkoa.

The palace has spectacular views of San Sebastián's beaches, "La Concha" bay, and the island of Santa Clara.
