Eastern Latvia Concert Hall "Gors", 4 Pils Street, Rēzekne

Eastern Latvia Concert Hall

The city in Rēzekne River Valley now boasts a brand new building volume - a multi-functional concert hall "Gore", sited in the very heart of the city next to its major attractions - the monument of Latgale's Mara, Rēzekne Culture House and the city's administrative centre.
The abstract character of the modernist-style building strives to reveal the very essence of the Latgalians' character - their inherent artistic nature and love of beauty as well as practical approach to life. It is like a Latgalian pottery kiln where creative spirit comes to materialization through flames, the same flames which are giving warmth to a traveler in a winter night. It is a place to create and experience art. The architectural composition of the facades and the interior of the building are designed on the basis of contrast - the eternal and fundamental feature of life itself with light and dark, action and stillness, all in creative interaction.
The building is designed according to the principle of five façades and has no "back" façade, with its roofing and the shape of the building itself acting as its fifth façade. An attractive roof terrace complements the monumental glass facade, allowing linking the interior with the outside space. It's particularly beautiful in the evening when the specially illuminated wall planes of the spectators' foyer are attracting one's attention while in the daytime they are reflecting the park outside the building.
It is also worth paying attention to how the interior of the building, through color and light, is exposed also on the outside.
