AVA Architects completed this theater that is situated in Guarda, a rural part of Portugal. The buildings are located in the central part of the city, south of the historical centre. The site is contiguous with the close-knit urban fabric but does not share a direct relationship with the surrounding public space. The new buildings have been designed for this very particular spot. The complex is composed of two autonomous and differentiated buildings, imposing a certain formal autonomy on them.
The whole complex is very puristic, with the emphasis on the contrast of materials. Enamelled glass next to wood or metal, the trend used in the interior but also exterior.The facade is dominated by glass-fibre, concrete panels, glass and granite. The objective was to create various forms and spaces which will persuade and attract visitors.
