Eifman Dance Palace

With a total surface area of 24,000 m² the new Eifman Dance Palace in St. Petersburg is home to the world-famous Eifman ballet. The building forms a part of the European Embankment district of St. Petersburg. The theatre designed by the architectural consultancy of UNStudio and Grigoriev and Partners provides space for up to 1,300 people. A transparent glass facade serves as the main entrance and allows the building to blend in seamlessly with the adjoining public square.
