English term or phrase:dark light locks
Moving out into the open space of the foyer one is below an expance of white, sloping cailing held up by angled white columns which meet in clusters at floor level. The grand staircase is peeled out of the wooden wall and leads up to 3 galleries around the auditorium, thus providing access to the upper levels of the hall. The interior of the wooden wall has an intimate feel in contrast to the open, white foyer. Dark light locks lead the audience into the heart of the building. The feeling is of being inside a carved out piece of timber, or perhaps within a musical instrument.
The interior, from cloakroom to auditorium can be described as a formalistic journey which takes the visitor from the open unknown to the enclosed and secure. The level of abstraction to be seen in the outer spaces made it natural to minimise the number of recognisable builing elements and details. At the same time it has been a clear aim that the furniture elements use the same design language as the building as a whole. Larger elements such as bar counters, shop fittings, ticketting desk, and cafè interiors are either integrated in larger building forms or designed as free standing sculptural forms in white corian. These can be completely closed down when not in use
