a renovation for Arenbergschouwburg

location: Antwerp (BE)
completion: 2016
client: Arenbergschouwburg
program: reorganisation of entrance area and new concert hall
interior architecture: i.s.m.architecten

Commissioned by Arenbergschouwburg , i.s.m.architecten redesigned the configuration of the freely accessible part of their ground floor space. With an additional concert hall, an exhibition space-annex-lounge area and an evening box office, the abundant surface of the public hall was structured and literally provided space to young, local makers to show their talent. Outside the festival periods, the new hall, equipped with a fixed bar, functions as the main foyer and forms the landmark and the central meeting point of the Arenberg.
