ATHENS OPERA HOUSE

  • Comment

The Arts Team is one of four international groups selected by omma to produce designs for a 1400-seat opera house. This, together with associated facilities for conference use and extensive car parking, is to be buried in the park next to the existing Megaron concert hall, with only the new fly tower visible above ground. Powerful, rough-hewn stone walls hold back the landscape and draw the public to the glass entrances. Rooflights for the public areas appear as pieces of sculpture in the park and will glow at night. Within the opera house, stepped boxes of the dark warm tones of wood veneers, bronze, copper and black lacquer unify the audience within a three-dimensional composition that focuses on the stage.
