The new 4,200 m² Vendsyssel Theatre in Hjørring in Northern Jutland, Denmark is designed by Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects, a Scandinavian architecture practice with over 30 years of experience.

The aim of the design was to provide to the citizens “a building which blends into the surrounding environment while standing out as a new, vibrant organism in the city.” To achieve this, the studio developed  5 themes: integration in the city, openness, functionality, flexibility and materiality. The result is composition of cubes characterized by their materiality: corten steel facades are divided by LED backed frosted glass facades that ” illuminate in various colors during the evening; thus, creating an aesthetic link between the town, the front plaza and the theatre building.” More projects on the studio’s page!
