the project was created for brain embassy – a co-working and co-creation space based in poland. design by fashion: lina is composed not only of concrete amphitheater, but also a series of green spaces that accommodate employees from neighboring buildings.
the amphitheater is articulated by a concrete ring covered with a massive canopy and supported by a reinforced concrete wall. the angle of the roof has been carefully studied to create a harmonious transition between the surrounding landscape and the new auditorium.
the main stage measures 431ft2 (40m2) and the seating area can accommodate approximately 140 spectators. there are also seats dedicated to disabled users, widespread wifi access and independent lighting for each sector. in agreement with the investor, adgar polandthe stage also features brand new AV cabling.
the square surrounding the amphitheater has been given a new lease of life. the round structure of the building is complemented by flowing forms of green spaces, filled with benches and playgrounds. the amphitheater was built from scratch on land belonging to the little adgar building, in which brain embassy is located.
