The pearl of the inner city is De Kustlinie. The building consists of a single-storey box measuring 100 x 100 metres stretching over the Weerwater lake. From this ground plan, three rectangular auditorium volumes rise – a small one for the arts centre and two larger ones for the theatre. The entrance foyer is extremely spacious but is of the same height as the adjacent spaces such as the restaurant and the training facility of the Arts Centre. A taller lobby, with room for a huge mural painting, has been spared out in the theatre section.
