The volume of the building with its pointed roof recalls the geometry of the mountain range and also fits in with all the other roofs in the town, while the fiery red colour underlines the dynamism of the volumes and makes the building an icon.
The architects’ purpose is to make the construction immediately visible in the vegetation while at the same time celebrating what it means: a home for the arts, a space in which to promote culture and improve the inhabitants’quality of life.
