‘The Green Theatre’ is a housing typology that adapts to the changing ‘acts’ of an overarching ‘play’. It’s a building that contains three main ‘stages’ and three different adaptable housing unit types.

We are replacing a park at the top of our building block, which is detached from the ground floor based on distancing, but offering a sheltered public and semi-public space where interaction does happen both, horizontally and vertically, subtly restricted to the limits of revolving green ‘curtains’.

Then, sunlight and vegetation intersected by platforms, staircases, bridges and balconies gives residents a diverse, ever-changing space that stimulates the senses. This lush green, praised by its reflection on first floor, brings everyday consciousness about environment. Nature heals, soothes, restores. 

Wrapping this green void, each housing unit offers flexible ways to inhabit, adaptable to today’s family types and needs, and redefining what a remote workplace is. These housing units are connected by the green corridor which guides people to the open air rooftop, a place to broad cast any outdoor lesson, to exercise or where all can gather and spend time safely with family and friends. 

We are promoting safe social interaction, enhance a sense of community, co-living. We believe in diversity of inhabitants and the input of what family means. 

Theatre is the presence of audience and performers at the same time sharing the same space. Sharing sensations mostly unexpected making life in many ways richer, provoking our brain and heart, erasing limits between architecture, poetry and art.
