Sala Beckett Theatre and International Drama Centre

A project that has been five years in the making, Barcelona’s Old Peace and Justice Cooperative Building has been transformed a new home for the Theatre Sala Beckett.

The building, which dates back to the 1920s, has been brought back to life through a series of interventions that preserve its original spatial characteristics while adding new floors to serve the needs of a modern theatre company.
