Taastrup Theatre, Community Theatre that located in Denmark, was designed by COBE. The key focus of the project was to improve the building’s communication with the surrounding area – a social housing neighbourhood in Taastrup.
A number of gates have been installed within the structure between the foyer and theatre space, allowing the structure to work as one coherent flowing space or separately as two distinct areas. Staff flow is optimised by merging the bar, box office and administration area, allowing all three services to be run by a single person, whilst the restrooms and café have been redistributed onto the first floor to ensure that the ground level is reserved for all non-technical functions.
The renovation of the interior space was influenced heavily by children’s associations with theatre, i.e. gold colouration, mirror pixel tiles and crystal chandeliers, contrasted with modern elements such as fluorescent lighting, an RGB bar and chairs designed by Paustian.
