The visitors' centre at Edøy forms the base for an amphitheatre with a view of a cultural landscape in untamed natural surroundings.

This centre was developed for the historical play “Gurispelet”, which is set on mediaeval Edøy. It also gives room for other cultural events like plays, concerts and movie shows.
The centre is cut into a sandy hill, at the edge of an agricultural landscape that includes an 800-year old church. The new amphitheatre shields the stage from the quayside.
The entire structure is in timber, partly in solid timber elements.
