Gandía, Spain
Gandia City Hall

The House of the Music is a house for the musicians of Gandia, a city with a high musical tradition.
Gandia has several music bands and in almost every family there is a relative who either plays in a band or studies in the conservatory. This culture requires a building which figures all the needs of the citizens so, the program includes a music school, a conservatory and an auditorium.
The building is built in concrete with inspiration from the music and the place it is located, Beniopa Passeig de Gandia, gazing at the Serra Falconera.
Therefore, the façade is designed partly with metal inspired by the instruments of the wind.
The lecture rooms breathe the sea breeze and are located in both the east and the north facades while the auditorium, in the west, can be used as an opened/closed concert hall facing the mountain range or as an outdoors auditorium.
