Description

Known by the name Escola das Gaivotas, for having been a primary school for some 50 years, the former Palácio Alarcão now serves new purposes. The main floors of the former school building are now occupied by the Gaivotas Creative Hub, and the Teatro Praga has installed itself in the palace building with the street number 6, taking on the name Rua das Gaivotas 6, a venue for visual art shows, performance art, conferences, literature, cinema and workshops. The aim of the remodelling project was to create a space of continuity with the building it is part of, reflecting an overriding desire for adaptation, improvisation and interaction with the city.
