Concept & Competition 001_The Theatre_Of_Floating_Garden_WE_ARCHITECTURE

The theatre in the garden / Openness: Traditionally, theatres only serve a small group of the population. If judging a book by the cover, most theatres also architecturally exempt the idea of a closed world, a place that only a few experience from the inside.  Our aim was to create an open house; a house for the people; a house which is as active and public from the inside as from the outside.

We have tried to design a dynamical building which creates a harmony between the coexistence of humanity and nature.  The new extension will be experienced as a light roof with transparent facades, connecting all the functions of the house and acting as a pavilion in the garden. With maximal respect towards the old trees on the site, we have tried to gently wrap the building around the surroundings in order to preserve as much of the original garden as possible.
