The municipality of ‘s-Hertogenbosch is getting a new Theater aan de Parade. The old Theater on the Parade was in need of renovation. The construction of the new theater was debated for years in the City Council. Where should it be located, what should it look like and what should it cost? In the end, construction was chosen on the old site, with parts of the old building mixed in with the new one as well.
Stevens Van Dijck is providing the project/design and construction management on behalf of the municipality of ‘s-Hertogenbosch and will be responsible for the management during construction.
The smart and thoughtful design of NOAHH | Network Oriented Architecture allows for broader, more flexible programming. More than just a theater, the new Theater on the Parade will be an accommodation for many meetings, experiences, theater, music, carnival, exhibitions and more. The multipurpose design provides opportunities for collaborations of many arts and cultural disciplines. The new Theater aan de Parade puts ‘s-Hertogenbosch prominently back on the map as the cultural city of the South.
The building fits well within the environment of the Parade. The building incorporates many smart and sustainable solutions. Such as reusing parts of the structure and materials. The halls can be used multifunctionally. There will be additional spaces, which can be used flexibly in programming. The basement is connected to the foyer, making this floor truly part of the building. Reuse of the existing basement basin was a tight framework in the design brief. The (official) inauguration of the new theater is scheduled for summer 2023.
