The shape of the building is a series of black boxes put together with a glazed front facade along Church Street.


The front canopy is the symbol of a theatre.


Point lights create glitter and subtle attraction.


Full height light boxes display posters for current and upcoming events.


Inspired from 19th century European continental theatres, the auditorium is based on the cylindrical form with a shallow orchestra surrounded by two balconies that bring intimacy.


One of my references in doing this was the inspiring Marie Bell Theatre in Paris.
