The Atlas Theatre in Emmen combines eminent architecture with modern technology. The design needed to stress the openess and space as well be a showcase for sustainable construction.
The challenge was to ensure that the acoustics in the grand foyer hall, with its 20 metre high ceiling, and other critical areas in the building were sufficiently insulated to avoid echoes and other unwanted sound. As the theatre is also the entrance to the new Zoo in Emmen this was especially important. The solution also needed to be aesthetically pleasing and had to enhance the very high standard of interior finish.
