Copenhagen Theatre

Copenhagen Royal Theatre Competition

Our competition proposals on Copenhagen's waterfront for the new Royal Theatre includes an auditorium, studio theatre and rehearsal rooms, along with public restaurants, shops and café and backstage accommodation. The form of the building responds to the two fundamental mandates of the competition brief: to develop an open cultural institution and a pragmatic well-functioning venue for cultural events. The proposed solution suspends the Auditorium in a colorful glass encasement, reversing the tradition of the theatre as a dark, monolithic structure. The building responds to the surrounding landscape of the quay, adopting an undulating, planted rooftop, implanted on the edge of the waterfront.
