Municipal Theatre Haarlem
The Municipal Theatre of Haarlem is a cultural landmark in the historical centre of Haarlem. The original theatre, built during WWII, is a listed monument and ranks among the 5 most important theatres in The Netherlands. EEA's design includes renovation and extension of the existing theatre. Respectful restoration of its unique character was one of EEA's main design objectives. The most striking intervention is the replacement of the original flight tower by a new structure. Brickwork, ornamented porcelain and partially screen printed glass are integrated into the existing eclectic Art Deco fašade. The design is the result of a co-operation of Erick van Egeraat with well-known Dutch ceramic artist Babs Haenen.
