Agora Theatre, Lelystad, Netherlands

Agora Theatre, Lelystad, Netherlands

Architect: Ben van Berkel, UNStudio
Type of works: installation of Hunter Douglas Luxalon® Ceiling system and wood tiles

Hunter Douglas’ Luxalon ceilings and Wood tiles play a key role in the eye-catching interior of the new Agora Theatre in Lelystad, the Netherlands. Ben van Berkels’ UNStudio promised Lelystad a diamond and that is exactly how their theatre looks like.

“The party should start in the foyer,” says the architect. It is in this remarkable environment where a beautiful application of Hunter Douglas’ Luxalon ceilings is applied. The foyer is painted in sparkling Pink and is a kaleidoscopic experience. The horizontal and vertical lining of Luxalon combined with the Pink balustrade accentuates the desired effect. Red painted wood tiles are applied in the impressive facated Dark Red walls of the larger auditorium and take care for a futuristic effect.

For the theatre to be truly successful, great design must be supported by superior function. Toward that end, Luxalon ceilings and wood tiles play a key role. Luxalon’s open joins with additional acoustic pad take care for excellent acoustic control while maintaining the smooth, cohesive overall look. Wood tiles improve the quality of all performances by an optimal balance in sound proofing and sound reflection.

The Agora Theatre
UNStudio’s new theatre is all about colour. The aluminium skin has different shades of Red, Orange and Yellow and is gleaming from afar. It is the visual effect that counts. “At Agora, theatrical drama and performance are not restricted to the stage and to the evening” says van Berkel. Agora was built to provide the small Dutch town Lelystad with new opportunities to prosper.
