Copenhagen’s waterfront promenade pivots around this new playhouse for the Royal Theatre company, diverting pedestrians onto a raised walkway with views across the water to the Opera House, the company’s previous home. The weight of the copper-clad auditorium
and scene tower is juxtaposed with a light andairy lobby. These two volumes are unified by a glazed back-of-house area at roof level.
