French practice Mikou Design Studio has unveiled the design for the 4,500m² Bateau Feu Theatre in Dunkirk, France.

The €15m ($21m) theatre renovation project will include a concert hall, a black box theatre space, rehearsal hall, dressing rooms, storage space and offices.

The civic building also features a foyer, cafe, bar, gift shop and a new public square outside.

Spaces have been volumetrically arranged with perforated metal cladding to give the building a four-stepped appearance leading to a square at the front of the site.
