The project involves the conversion and renovation of a building that previously housed a movie theatre, no longer in operation, the ex Ariston. It involves the construction of a multipurpose cultural centre with an auditorium, a library, reading rooms and dining spaces.
GaS opted to keep the envelope of the building, emptying the contents and redesigning the space in order to create a sense of lightness and openness, and most importantly transparency to the community which it serves.
