When the Royal Danish Theatre’s playhouse opened in 2008, it became a true gem in central Copenhagen. A gem that offered perfect conditions for the finest in Danish dramatic art.
The playhouse is located in Kvæsthusbroen, where the large ferries dominated the harbour in the past. The building has approx. 750 audience seats, to which a flexible scene can be added with approx. 250 seats.
Architects Lundgaard & Tranberg came up with the ideas for the playhouse, which they have created to both challenge and fit in with Frederiksstaden’s distinctive waterfront promenade.
The production and installation of the 85-metre-long and 180-tonne trusses was both a demanding and exciting challenge for CSK.
The trusses were produced in smaller elements and assembled at the old B&W site in Copenhagen, before being transported to Kvæsthusbroen and installed using Denmark’s largest floating crane.
In addition to the trusses, CSK supplied stairs, platforms, railing and balconies.
