A conversion of an old military hangar into a creative cultural communal center. HQ’s task was to maintain the space’s ability to host several large scale events throughout the year, and allow for smaller scale events in between. In addition, the development of the project would have to be divided into a 3 phases due to lack of initial funds.

The hangar is an existing large space of over 1000 m2 that can accommodate large scale events such as rock concerts, fairs and farmers markets several times a year. Smaller scale events during the rest of the year can consist of lectures, art exhibitions, installations, master classes etc. These specific events will keep the center active all year round, but the unique qualities of this large space may be lost when adjusted for small events. If the large space is maintained, it will be kept unused for long periods.
