National Theatre of Győr
Date (design): 2018

Investor: Local Government of Győr
Thanks to its dynamically raised mass, called the “ski jump ramp”, the National Theatre of Győr was highly criticized after its handover in 1978. The applied architectural elements are truly representing the characteristics of the era. However the shaping caused compromises functionally. In spite of the negative opinions it has became an icon of the city by now. Since then it has importance both emotionally and in aspect of townscape. The aim of our design contest was solving the functional problems of the facility. Correcting the limited usage of the fly tower narrowed underneath the “ski jump ramp” was also our task as well as to transfer the chamber stage from its bad position to a new building. Additional tasks were rethinking and renewing the auditorium, the staff rooms and the lobby.
