Project Detail


Za-Koenji Public Theatre

Suginami-ku, Tokyo Japan


Project Description

The Za-Koenji Public Theater replaces the old Koenji Hall with a space that is closed off from its surrounding context, with height restrictions informing the facets of its roof, as well as the program. Only one of the three performance spaces is on the ground floor, along with offices; the other two are below grade the basement levels, with supporting spaces for props and costume production. The theater employs separate structural systems for the exterior, and for each floor.
