    Rēzekne is the first city in Latvia where a completely new concert hall has been built from the ground up, and currently it may be seen as the most important cultural building in the whole of Latvia. The design by Uldis Balodis and Daiga Bikše won the architectural design competition in 2008. Gors has a classic three-part volume combination – a multi-level vestibule that is open for view, the Great Hall and the Small Hall. The glazed facades and the facades dressed with decorative fibre cement panels are easily visible from the city’s viewpoints, and they fit in harmoniously in the pronounced terrain of the location. The boundary between the facade and the roof has been visually broken down by using the same materials and distribution of proportions in the final part of the building, and, furthermore, the roof terrace is open to the public during the summer season, to organize film evenings and concerts there. There is a series of rooms surrounding the three-part volume for rehearsals, exhibitions and seminars as well as separate rooms for artists and conductors. The extensive glazed areas emphasize the communal character of Gors and create a connection between outdoors and indoors.
