When we first came across the old Werktheater, we saw the potential for a truly new breed of building. Giving renewed purpose to this former VOC shipyard and theatre required an equally imaginative tenant. We found the perfect one in …,staat creative agency. Together we reimagined what a creative space could be. Combining studios, offices, a restaurant and bar into an exciting mix of purpose and pleasure. We maintained many original features while adding new functions and designs. The result is a multilayered and multifunctional building concept where creativity still takes centre stage, the New Werktheater.
