Kilden, a theatre and concert hall in Kristiansand, Norway, has brought together the city’s institutions of performing arts. Kristiansand Symphony Orchestra now has a concert hall accommodating 1200 attendees. Adger Theater, a regional group, is performing in a theater with a capacity of 700. The theater hall can be transformed to accommodate opera performance to house the ensemble Opera South. In addition, there is a stage for experimental theater and a multi-purpose hall with a level floor.

Kilden produces experiences. The core of its architecture is the way the concert, theater and multi-purpose halls serviced efficiently and without interference. The monumental abstract form of the wall of local oak, separates reality from fantasy. Passing through, the audience will move from natural landscape to the realm of the performing arts. The wall allures the landscape to the realm of the performing arts. The wall allures the audience and express the diversity of the artistic performances housed by the building as well as the power induced by their combination.

The wall made of wedged CNC milled solid planks is not only a disguised theatrical effect but a concrete tactile artifact, which also improves the acoustics of the foyer. The infinite blackness of the other facades emphasizes the spectacle of the foyer.
