La Llotja Theatre


The building rises in a great architectural body establishing a visual dialogue with the old town and its cathedral.

It occupies as small an area as possible on the ground floor to provide more open leisure space for the city. The site has been transformed into a square hosting open-air initiatives such as the staging of theatre performances and other events visible from the stepped seating covering the annexed Mercolleida building programme.

The semi-outdoor space beneath the huge overhangs, devised in formal terms to offer shade on hot days and shelter when it rains, fulfil a number of different functions: main entrance and box office.

The main entrance serves to draw the public in beneath this overhang, taking the form of a vertical slit inviting visitors into the heart of the building. From this central point all of the building's functions are linked up.

The overhang gives the flexibility required for any combination of events, such as conventions, exhibitions, theatre performances, meetings, trade fairs... It interconnects all the elements of the building around a large foyer surrounding the building on the upper floor, while maintaining the independence of each unit. It also provides different entrance points to the auditoriums.

Auditorium 1 is designed to offer optimum acoustic quality and a perfect visual perspective from any location. An auditorium equipped with the latest audiovisual technology, designed to fulfil to perfection any of its functions: theatre, cinema, conventions, conferences, congresses... A hall covering an area of 852 m2 with seating for 1000.
