Scala Santa - REUSE
La Scala Santa is the result of the metamorphosis of a small stone building constructed in 1926 into a multimedia performance space at the cutting edge of technology. The original structure, covering a series of steps, is a replica of the praetorium in Jerusalem. It is located at the Ermitage Saint-Antoine, a property of the Capucins in Lac-Bouchette. The performance space’s arrangement includes a reception area, a stage, large seats and audio-visual equipment. The central stairway remains exposed beneath the additions. At the exterior, the steel addition on the main façade is decorated with perforations in the form of a tree, which highlight the relationship between the structure and the surrounding forest.
