Oulu, Hupisaari (summer theatre)
Telescopic tribune + Salo seat (wood composite)
The new building of the summer theatre for the Hupisaaret islands is a multifunctional space, which is easy to change according to different uses. The new complex has been built on the site of the demolished summer theatre pavilion. A general architectural competition for the new building of the summer theatre for the Hupisaaret islands was held in 2013, after which entry called ”Arborea” designed by Janne Lauka and Tuomas Niemelä, was selected for further development of the project.
We have delivered to the theatre telescopic tribune for outdoor use equipped with stylish wood composite seats. The telescopic design enables the whole tribune to be easily moved indoors for the winter. The tribune is designed in all aspects, including surface treatment, to be durable for demanding outdoor use. The telescopic tribune is hand-operated and easy to use, so it is also easy to move.
