Practice creates moulded concrete picture house in Galway
Irish practice dePaor has created a distinctly brutalilst “concrete castle” dedicated to film in the City of Galway that mixes plush traditional interiors with an angular modern exterior.
Pálás incorporates a Georgian merchant house in the west Ireland cultural capital’s Latin Quarter, and was 14 years in the making: the shell and core were completed in 2014, but the venue only opened this year.
Inside, the three-screen venue features state-of-the-art equipment, elaborate red velvet curtains, theatrical lighting and plush seating from 70-year-old French manufacturer Quinette Gallay.
