Schauspielhaus theatre, Düsseldorf
ingenhoven architects are planning the renovation of the Schauspielhaus theatre in Düsseldorf
ingenhoven architects are responsible for the renovation of the Schauspielhaus theatre in Düsseldorf and are working in close cooperation with the Insitut für Denkmalschutz (Institute for listed buildings). The Schauspielhaus was built according to the plans of the architect Bernard Pfau from 1965 to 1970, and forms together with the Dreischeibenhaus, one of the most important ensembles of post-war architecture in Germany.
The building was added to the list of monuments in March 1998, due to its architectural, historical and urban significance, although the structural condition of the house no longer corresponds to that of a modern theater. The building must be modernized both internally and externally, special attention will be given to the spatial and atmospheric quality experienced by visitors and employees.
The planning area includes roof and façade renovation, in addition to the renovation of all interior public spaces, lighting and furniture design included. Currently, the Schauspielhaus is closed and uses alternative premises in the vicinity of Dusseldorf Main Station. The reopening is planned for mid-2019.
