Theatre de Stoep in Spijkenisse realised

UNStudio's Theatre de Stoep in the Dutch town of Spijkenisse has been realised and will open to the public tomorrow.

UNStudio’s design for Theatre responds to the current cultural invigoration of the city by merging the archetypal function of a theatre - that of creating a world of illusion and enchantment - with the specific requirements of a regional theatre and its requisite to cater to the varied needs of the local community. The theatre is therefore designed with a dual emphasis on the chimeric nature of the world of the stage and the social aspects of the theatre experience.
