From the architect. This project deals with the renovation of a former workshop purchased by a director and playwright to establish a dramaturgy school. The aim was to create a very flexible and neutral space able to accommodate at the same time events, exhibitions, concerts, courses, performances and lectures.

A spectacular hanging cones ceiling, modulating natural and artificial lighting, acting as an acoustic modulator and hiding impressive electrical and air passages, sets the tone to this vibrant place.

The ceiling hanging cones, with varied diameters (from 180 cm to 380 cm), were made using plaster cast technology. Some of the “ceiling-lens” spread natural light, other artificial lights (warm dimmerable fluorescent light). Above the etched round Plexiglas sheets were placed motorized darken horizontal curtains to guarantee the total inner light control needed for performances, concerts, projections and other activities.

The main hall wooden floor was realized using simple nailed scaffolding boards. Floors and walls in the entrance/foyer area are rubber-coated.
