This project is an example of well-coordinated work of architects and builders: modern architecture, technologies and theatre needs had to be united with elements protected by the Committee for State Control, Use and Protection of Historical and Cultural Landmarks. That is why the Shukhov trusses and the two stone side wings remained in their original locations and became part of the auditorium. The plan view of the new building resembles that of a classical cathedral. The new theatre can be visually divided into three parts - the side wings, the central part, and the stage. These parts differ in height, architecture and functions. The reconstruction also involved Izmailovsky Garden. Lighting Technologies carried out a complete delivery of equipment for the project. When performing the detailed design, the company’s specialists prepared in every detail the lighting solutions for the auditorium and lobbies. They also developed a new model of luminaires in the form of a wall lamp (FROST), with emergency power supply units, which are a rare thing for a wall luminaire with energy saving lamps. Spotlight luminaires were used as well. Also, a number of solutions in the spirit of theatre traditions materialized in the lighting of the adjacent territories and the facade.
