The House of the Arts by FAT is located in the heart of Miranda do Corvo, a region that is an hour away from Porto. FAT, an established Portuguese design firm standing for Future Architecture Thinking aimed to create an iconic structure when designing this geometry-infused architecture piece.

Standing amidst its vast green landscape, the House of the Arts boasts a bold red facade and a structure that relies on sharp and angular forms. The vivid and conceptual architecture piece is sure to become a growing landmark for its region's visitors, acting as a spatial metaphor for the Portuguese art scene and creative culture.

The structure showcases sloped rooftops and zigzag-resembling elements that add an urban touch to its natural surrounding topography. The industrial red building stands apart from its neighbouring small village homes and open green landscape.
