House of the ArtsEdit profile
The location of the House of Arts building on the plot of land is the result of the best relationship between two factors: the adequacy of the main part of the building from the programme, namely the stage, and the best solution for auditorium loading and unloading operations.
The programme is therefore divided into two main areas - auditorium and cafeteria/shops, which justifies the division of the building into three sections in order to reduce its scale. Therefore, the stage stands out from the stalls and the foyer and the nucleus for the cafeteria and shops forms a visually independent body. The proposal is based on a contemporary language which is structurally very strong through the continuity between the facades and the roof. The slopes of the roof look for identification with the city rooftops and the use of the strong colour is intended to create a building which is immediately recognisable by the public.
