STUFISH designed a multipurpose entertainment building in Skolkovo, Russia.
The black box venue, at the core of the building, is designed to be a flexible space that can be used as a theatre, nightclub and events space. It has two permanent theatrical grids.
The lower tier of seating can be retracted to allow for a flat floor space, and a suspended acoustic wall can be brought down to seal off the upper tier of seating creating a secondary venue for use as a cinema.
The LED covered ‘Blank Canvas’ façade that surrounds the Black Box theatre allows it to promote its ever changing contents to the outside world.
The entire façade can support the atmosphere of the event as well as promote the building as people approach; working with the landscaping to draw people into the exciting outdoor pre-show performances that take place under the shelter of the canopy.
