Vorpommern Theater Renovation, Greifswald (DE)

Dietrich | Untertrifaller Architekten won the Europe-wide negotiation procedure for the general renovation of the Theater Vorpommern, venue Greifswald, in 2017. The university and Hanseatic city of Greifswald is the most important scientific and business location in the Vorpommern region. The theatre with its adjoining town hall was built in 1915 in neoclassical style and offers 438 seats.
The aim of the renovation is an economical, technically, energetically and logistically optimized spatial structure. The corresponding areas for building and stage technology will also be expanded and modernised and the fire protection concept adapted to today’s safety standards. The original character of the listed building is retained.
As a first step, our office carries out an overall assessment of the existing building and then develops a detailed redevelopment concept.
