Project Description

Atelier Theatre Jean Vilar

OUEST won the competition for the renovation of theater ATJV in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium.

The project aims to create a theater with a higher height than the existing one, without raising the current roof. This is possible in Louvain-la-Neuve, city built on a slab, where – like in this case – height can found be digging in the lower levels, beneath the street level. The new project offers a strong face and visibility towards the pedestrian city, while maintaining a assumed logic of renovation.
