Snøhetta has been announced as the winner of a design competition for the renovation of the avant-gardist Théâtre Nanterre-Amandiers in Nanterre, France. The renovation seeks to breathe new life into the 1960s theater, known for its high-quality performances and global collaborations. The renovations will include the addition of a 200-seat theater, and the reconfiguration of the building’s restaurant, bookshop, and atrium space, with an emphasis on flexibility and natural light. The scheme’s foyer will feature a glazed façade overlooking surrounding parkland, combining with a perforated ceiling to allow natural light into the space. A series of platforms will separate ticketing, restaurant, and performance spaces, while a third theater, comprising 200 seats, will add to the scheme’s existing 900-seat capacity.
