The Kilden Performing Arts Centre by ALA Architects Ltd. is located in Kristiansand, Norway. The concert hall and theatre space is designed as the city's latest cultural landmark. With a cantilevered roof and undulating structural elements, this dynamically designed space overlooks an ocean view. Clad in local materials, the building features bold wooden elements paired with metal-infused accents.

Architect Juho Grönholm of ALA Architects states that "The building fuses elegant public and performing spaces with rough, functional production facilities." Multi-functional and aesthetically awe-inspiring, this amazing architecture piece features four auditoriums, a public foyer, production street, workshop and staff offices.

With the capacity to seat up to 2270 people, the grand structure is the home of a theatre company, philharmonic and an opera. The Kilden Performing Arts Centre by ALA Architects Ltd. is sure to be a hit amongst tourists and Kristiansand citizens alike.
