Theater Zuidplein is the new cultural hotspot of Rotterdam-Zuid. In addition to two theatre halls and a café-restaurant, it also houses a branch of Rotterdam Library. Theater Zuidplein is part of the area-wide PPP development Hart van Zuid, around Zuidplein and the Ahoy event centre. The Gooilandsingel will be transformed into a 750-metre-long, green and car-free boulevard, creating an inviting place to stay, play, live, shop and enjoy culture.
A great achievement of the design is the way in which all the noise requirements have been met.
Here, a pop concert and a poetry reading can take place at the same time, without disturbing each other and without disturbing the neighbours. This means that this cultural facility could be located right in the middle of the city, exactly where it belongs.
The entrance façade is provided with a semi-transparent aluminium voile that provides a special play of light in the interior during the day and a festive illuminated display at night.
The lofty reception hall forms the heart of the building and functions as a living room for Rotterdam-Zuid. The main hall can accommodate 600 visitors..
