Rock Shaped Lakeside Theatre by Bargone Associati 

Four pebble-shaped volumes form this cultural centre completed by Bargone Architetti Associati on the stony shoreline of Lake Maggiore, Italy. This “multifunctional cultural complex” contains spaces for cultural events and art exhibitions, two 500 and 200-seat theatres, offices, a rehearsal theatre, a restaurant and a cafe.

The external landscape is “sculptured with a system of descending bleachers allowing a panoramic view of the lake”. Federico Bargone, Bargone Associati co-founder, said that “the lake stone is the very symbol of the project and the striking surrounding context was the trigger for the design. ts architecture grows from the unique relation between mountains, city and lake“.

The Italian studio chose to clad the four irregularly curving forms in zinc, giving them a pale grey colouring that matches stones on the lake shore. They are linked by a smaller rectilinear volume fronting the lake, which presents a glazed facade to the nearby city of Verbania.
