During the complete renovation of Bern’s municipal theatre, the audience areas are being redesigned along with the technical equipment and the backstage area. The plan is to convert the attic into a multi-functional venue to rent it out as an event space and also use it as a stage for spoken theatre or smaller musical performances, while significantly enhancing the acoustic situation and the stage technology.
In close collaboration with the department for monument conservation, a distinctly integrational conception was chosen for the entire project, subtly including the redesigned elements in the room without overstaging the new ones. The exquisite heavy CAVALLO PIU curtain discreetly integrates with the room to complete the overall impression.
