HKA dance & theatre faculty
The Dance & Theatre faculty of the Institute of the Arts in Arnhem stands right next to the Rietveldgebouw (Rietveld building). In order not to disturb this special setting, the building was built entirely underground. To make this possible, ABT designed an excavation measuring 42 by 97 metres with a depth of 14 metres.
A special design, taking into account its location at the foot of the lateral moraine of the river Rhine. In 2002, Phase 1 (the excavation; diaphragm walls, underwater concrete and cellar floor) was executed; the internal structure was completed in 2003 and 2004.
