County Theater extension

The curtain is possibly one of the most iconic elements of theaters all over the world. It hides and reveals, it builds up the excitement.

The concept of the façade for the extension of the County Theater is to start a new conversation.

The idea is also to use a relatively abstract architectural language in order to not compete with the extraordinary existing facade of the theatre. The new facade in that way gently nods to the existing building but it also reconfigures the current public spaces by creating a new entrance and foyer, which now have direct views to the outside. The idea here is to bring the theatre to the outside world, to make it more engaging with the community.
