Restoration and modernization go hand in hand
Schouwburg Kunstmin by architect J.J. Verheul was originally built in 1889 as a concert hall with a stage tower, and was radically remodeled in 1939 by Sybold van Ravesteyn who only left the exterior walls intact. In the present renovation, both the auditorium and fly tower were improved by architect Martien van Goor, following Theateradvies’ design. The house logistics is more efficient and the stage area is larger. By adding side stages and increasing the height of the fly tower, the theater is now suitable for larger scale performances. The sightlines from the auditorium have also been improved. This renovation allows this historical theatre to participate in the present and future artistic scene.
