Cirkus, Scandiascenen in Stockholm, Sweden by White Arkitekter

The historic Cirkus theatre in Stockholm – built 1892 – has received a modern addition, Skandiascenen, partly built into a niche of solid rock. The foyers of the two amphitheaters are placed on two different levels. From the outside, each one of the facades preserves its own identity which is a testimony to their respective age. Inside, both venues share an intimate feeling in the auditoria and even the same shade of red that is commonly associated with traditional theatres.

Skandiascenen is the new stage in a salon with capacity for 800 people. It is contiguous to the emblematic Cirkus theatre building. The curved façade in stainless steel – overlapping on a fish-like pattern – is completed with curved glass partitions and gives a dynamic impression for those passing by the Hazeliusbacken hillside in the island of Djurgården in central Stockholm. The historical Cirkus theatre contrasts with its stucco and brick facade.

The interiors of the new theatre are designed to give an intimate feeling. The auditorium itself features shades of red that resemble, and pay tribute to, traditional theatres.

The entry building is marked by its fully glazed entrance and the choice of this material is explained due to its transparent and light properties. As it gets dark, the traditional Cirkus façade appears behind the light glass volume.
