The refurbishment of the Théâtre Nanterre-Amandiers – Europe’s largest suburban theatre – opened in September 1965 under the impetus of Pierre Debauche, has been underway since June 2021. Selected in October 2018, following a competitive dialogue launched in July 2017 with all the partners (City of Nanterre, Hauts-de-Seine Department, State, Île-de-France Region), it was the project by Norwegian architectural firm Shnohetta, whose work includes the Oslo Opera House and the headquarters of Le Monde newspaper, that was chosen for this major renovation project.
The future Nanterre-Amandiers building, which will be fully transparent, will open wide onto a forecourt overlooking both Avenue Pablo-Picasso and Avenue Joliot-Curie, where the future tramway will run. More visible and brighter, the theatre will be radically transformed. A new 200-seat auditorium will be built, the scenic equipment will be completely renewed, and the reception areas and dressing rooms will be modernised.
The lower part of the theatre will be open directly onto the outside and will house a bookshop and restaurant. The restaurant will also operate outside opening hours. The height of the building and the view of the Théâtre de Verdure will be enhanced.
The building will also be brought up to regulatory standards: accessibility for people with reduced mobility, electricity, thermal insulation, etc.
We will be keeping you regularly informed about the progress of the project through photo reports, videos, interviews, etc.
