On the area of the former Munich stockyard, the new theatre house of Münchener Volkstheater is currently being built. As it is now provisionally accommodated in a building not intended for theatre operation, the City of Munich decided in 2014 to erect a new theatre at a new location, the old Munich stockyard.
Construction began in mid-2018 and should be finished until summer 2021. SSF Ingenieure is responsible for the structural design of the old building and new constructions. The facility comprises around 26,000 m2 net area incorporating a main and a side stage, a rehearsal stage, dressing rooms, foyer, administrative offices, workshops and storage. It’s red brick façade seamlessly blends in with neighbouring buildings. The offices of the artistic management and administration are integrated into the existing heritage-protected building, which will also be renovated.
