Wennekerpand

Schiedam, The Netherlands
September 2011

The multi use cultural centre reopened its doors after a refit designed by the Royal Haskoning Architect firm. As a main supplier of specialised stage fabrics ShowTex Netherlands was commissioned to deliver all light masking and sound absorbing drapery for the multifunctional theatre and cinema.

In order to guarantee optimal acoustic conditions in the space and ideal light levels ShowTex custom manufactured stage drapes and perimeter curtains using the light masking and flame retardant Wool Serge M1.

As a polyvalent art center, Wennekerpand is a former distillery that provides spaces for theatre societies and dance schools. ShowTex installed a lightweight, double-sided black/white DanceCarpet Double in all classrooms. By using the practical EasyRoller Dance Floor cart developed by ShowTex, all dance flooring can be easily removed so the rooms can be used for other purposes.
