Construction of two extensions on either side of the foyer (glass roofs), interior design for the hall, promenade, foyer and bar, and toilets.
In 2011, the Marigny Theatre is embarking on a major restructuring and extension project, in particular to modernise the spaces and bring the theatre, which was inaugurated in 1894, up to technical and accessibility standards.
In the reception hall, the floor is covered in white stone. In the foyer bar, it is combined with black granite to form a checkerboard pattern. The walking areas are covered with a woollen carpet, with a strip on the sides revealing the white stone. The walls are finished with a mineral rendering in composite stone.
The project includes two extensions on avenues Gabriel and Champs-Elysées. These major parts of the project feature a metal structure enclosed by a glazed façade and a zinc roof in keeping with the general architecture of the theatre. The steel profiles have been powder-coated black to match the exterior metalwork of the theatre. The zinc on the roof was repatinated in dark grey. Black canvas awnings were installed.
