CHIPPERFIELD BUILDS SPANISH THEATRE

  • Comment
NEWS IN PICTURES

David Chipperfield Architects has won an international design competition for a new theatre in the Southern Spanish town of Estepona. The London- and Berlinbased office - in collaboration with Bilbao's IA+B - will now draw up detailed designs for the 11,650m 2 site. The scheme will essentially wrap the new building, which will include a 600-seat theatre complex, in a system of opaque and transparent walls.

These walls will also create a series of shaded viewing platforms throughout the site. Internally, the theatre itself will be made up of four separate spaces that will be linked by a large foyer area. These will be two separate auditoria, a bar and a private function room.

The project will also create a landscaped link between an adjacent park and the neighbouring seafront. This new landscaping will effectively continue the stepped effect of the building, progressing gradually to the sea.
