Interpretive Centre of the Iberian Mask

Space for cultural tradition.
Interpretive Centre
of the Iberian Mask

The obvious juxtaposition of times, the past and the present, assumed in the Interpretive Centre of the Iberian Mask, reveals the interest in disseminating the traditional values associated with the customs and habits of the region, by preserving and upgrading the former residence of the Viscount of Lazarim and, simultaneously, an ode to contemporaneity, mirrored in a completely autonomous enlargement, whose simplicity fits with and respects the pre-existing architecture.
