DUTCH OPERA

Utility

Simple interventions increase the efficiency of the workshop space, and create a different experience for both user and passer-by.

 

The studio where the scenery, costumes and props for the Dutch Opera and Ballet are created was originally built in 1962. Characteristic of the building is the high fly tower, which has the same dimensions as the theatre stage, so scenery can be designed in situ. The renovation included a reorganisation, to optimise the use of the available space. With the design of the bright red facade, the building was also given a new, remarkable appearance. Two very large north-facing windows reveal the interior activities to the passer by, while the users now work in ample daylight, with a view.
