The intention of the revitalization of the courtyard was primarily to clarify and simplify the operational links and routes, to add the necessary spaces and functions to increase the efficiency of the theatre operation and to improve the overall quality of the facilities, including the renewal of the technical infrastructure. A great emphasis was placed on the integration of maximum greenery into the overall concept and on the energy efficiency of the solution.
The central part of the design will thus be the urban-architectural design of the courtyard area, which will include the construction of new spaces necessary for the expansion of the theatre facilities, the design of the facades of the existing buildings facing the courtyard and the optimisation of the existing technical infrastructure.
The inner courtyard, where many operational functions meet (technology, storage, refuse, supply, transport) and which until now has had more of a residual character, is not only to be revitalised and made more efficient from a practical point of view, but also humanised so that it serves as a pleasant place for the service public to stay. The challenge is therefore to strike a balance between functionality and the residential qualities of the space. The inner block should also provide a visual and traffic connection to the urban spaces on Zahradní and Milíčova Street. However, it is not the aim to open the space to the public.
