The 300 seat beehive theater is used for professional drama performance.
At the same time, combined with the sound absorption and refraction of the curtain, seats and audience’s body during the performance, the reverberation time of the space is controlled at 1.2 seconds, providing the audience with the ultimate audio-visual experience and a display space for the innovative interpretation of the drama.
At the same time, the ceiling structure adopts the triangular grid multi ribbed box girder system to realize the columnless space, forming the continuity of space and the penetration of landscape.
Above the berm and the back wall of the auditorium are slotted sound-absorbing plates with sound-absorbing effect, and the ceiling adopts 50 thick high-grade glass fiber finished sound-absorbing plates.
The stone on the facade of theater a is light in color.
Therefore, the design of outdoor Dionysian theater returns to the essence of drama – the interpretation of life.

At the same time, Dionysus theater provides actors with the possibility of different sets and positions.
The open-air performance with sand dunes and sea as the background itself has become the repertoire of the city, and the architecture has become the gathering place of urban public events.
It will stage the works of Meng Jinghui drama studio and other pioneer experimental plays.
The solid facade composed of metal and two kinds of stone endows the three theaters with different characters.
The outdoor Dionysian theater is located at the corner, connecting the streets on both sides and introducing the urban space into the interior.
Considering the uncertainty of the purpose of the play, this idea was not implemented in the end.

One side of the site looks across the sand dunes from the sea, and the other three sides are the urban environment close to the apartment building.
The division of the stone follows the perspective rule of human eyes, showing a dense rhythm.
Because it is tall and solemn, it can provide more specific experience space, which can meet the space use needs of various functions from drama performance to concert, exhibition, performance show, auto show and so on.
It is the center of phase VI Construction of Anaya town.

Usually, it is a city square located on the corner.
The traditional theater is a closed box space, and the performances take place inside.
Actors entered the stage from the street.
Therefore, how to deal with the relationship between the theater and the sea, blocks and surrounding buildings, and how to shape urban space have become the focus of design.

Therefore, at the beginning of the design, a fully open door was designed behind the stage of the honeycomb theater.
Divide the whole into parts to form a three volume building complex, dispel the sense of scale conflict between a building’s too large volume and the surrounding buildings, and make the building and the city have a positive effect of mutual integration.

The stage set is juxtaposed with the real urban life scene of the small town to create a unique seaside theater.
It carries the functions of performance, gathering, rest and sea viewing, giving more publicity to the urban life of the town.
The hue and facade of the interior space are unified into black to reflect the temperament of the honeycomb as a representative of domestic experimental drama.
Theater a and honeycomb theater, one large and one small, respectively continue the urban relationship between the streets on both sides, connected by the lobby in the middle.
Unfortunately, such a design needs to be highly combined with the design of the play itself.
The project is located in a special-shaped site at the intersection of two main roads.
