Performance VENUE

The 15.000 sqft performance venue space hosts quite a complex program: concert hall, restaurant, terrace lounge and all supporting spaces including a full kitchen. Due to it’s multifunctional use the space has to be flexible enough to accommodate anything from Greek ethnic events, rock concerts to weddings and bar mitzvah. Simple utilitarian design was the key and to achieve this we left most of the concrete surfaces exposed or covered with functional acoustical panels or structural systems for equipment. The only really “designed” space will be the VIP lounge on the terrace.
