New Luxor Theater

New Luxor Theater – Rotterdam, the Netherlands, 2001

Architect: Bolles + Wilson

The new Luxor Theater is located in Kop van Zuid, a new urban development on Rotterdam Bay, overlooking the Maas River and Rijn Harbor. The building has multiple orientations and a single exterior wrapping facade that integrates the view from any angle.

The building’s size – it accommodates 1500 – and varied composition based on transparent acoustic elements make it resemble a large musical instrument. The wood panels lining the interior of the main auditorium create a warm, intimate atmosphere.
