City of Zurich

We won a three-way pitch to create a new foyer for Zürich’s legendary 19th century playhouse, the Schauspielhaus. Working closely with theatre management and City of Zürich, we created a new entrance that used stage illusions and contemporary architecture in a dramatic way.

To attract attention to the remodelled theatre, we put up giant cinema screens outside the playhouse showing scenes from a live performance. This celebration of Zürich’s theatrical past and present combined with our exciting new foyer resulted in record audiences for the Schauspielhaus.
