Located on Kvæsthusbroen Landing Stage in the inner harbour of Copenhagen the Royal Theatre will get a new playhouse, at the end of Sankt Annæ Plads. The Royal Theatre already has a theatre on the water, the Opera house on Kgs. Nytorv, at the other side of the harbour. Only the ballet will remain in the old building. The two prominent positions along the water will turn them into two cultural focus points in the city. The exterior of the new playhouse is dominated by a continuous glass-encased top story with offices and facilities for the actors. On top is the ‘black box’ each theatre has. Visitors will arrive along gently sloping ramps, like a promenade, with a panoramic view of the waterfront. A pedestrian and bicycle tunnel under the harbour to link the Playhouse with the Opera is being considered.
