This project found its architecture and its origin in the surrounding topography and was designed to be coherent with the landscape.

Indeed, just like the hill it is built on, the Auditorio de Lugo is organized on two heights: the lower elevation faces the avenue on street level, and the upper faces the gardens of the hill. The lines of the building reinforce the impression of harmony, while the auditorium’s interior gives visitors an impression of innovation and modernity.

The auditorium, which can accommodate up to 900 visitors, was designed by Paredes Pedrosa Arquitectos – who received the ‘2014 Spain Fine Arts Gold Medal’ and the ‘2007 Spain Architecture Award’ from the Spanish government.

The building itself received the 2016 ‘Veteco – Asefave Award’, recognizing project façades that are noteworthy for quality and design, as well as energy efficiency, sustainability, and respect for the environment.

Thanks to its high light transmission (70%), Guardian SunGuard® SuperNeutral™ (SN) 70/41 coated glass lets large amounts of natural light filter through the large curtain walls to take full advantage of them and sublimate the high ceilings and the wood’s beautiful colours.

hus, the need for artificial light is reduced, while solar protection and thermal insulation are improved; as a result, concert-goers and other visitors can enjoy the performances and the scene comfortably.
