Taastrup Theater by COBE Architects

Adaptive reuse is a marvellous process, where a new structure complements the old, the old complements the new, and when put together, a greater, harmonious architecture sings proudly. Taastrup Theater in Copenhagen, Denmark, was once an aging, rough concrete box built originally as a community centre in the 1970s. With a much-needed beautification from COBE architects, a new, delicate layer has been added. Like a draped stage curtain, the veiled façade defines a revamped theatre and signals the start of a new Taastrup town.
