Project Area: 620.0 sqm Collaborators: Hans Guttormsgaard/Anne – Ki Thoresen This centre was developed for the historical play ”Gurispelet”, situated on medival Edøy. It also gives room for different cultural events such as concerts, plays and movieshows.
The centre is cut into a sandy hill, on the edge of an agricultural landscape which includes an eighthundred year old church. The new amphitheatre shields the stage from the quayside.
To maintain possible movement in the landskape adjasent to centre, a roof terrace has been formed over the visitorcentre as an extention to the surronding farmlandscape.
The roofterrace creates a good viewingplatform for surrounding landscape. The entire structure is done in timber, partly as solid wood construction.
