In 1978 Sybold van Ravesteyn's original building dating from 1954 was wrapped in a new exterior and an angular extension added. All the original decorations were lost as a result. In 2004 the theatre celebrated its first half-century, which gave cause for a new metamorphosis. The 'brown' 1970s ambience of lowered ceilings, 45-degree angles and timbers made way for a festive, exotic interior by the artist Marión van der Schelde that is more suited to the theatre's multicultural programme. The exterior was painted a deep red.
