The author of the painted curtain at the new theatre is academic painter Ivana Hejduková from the KVADRA association. The creation of the curtain was photographed on 6 August 2014 by the JK Tyl Theatre's photographer Pavel Křivánek
The front facade made of cast concrete gives the final touch to the new theatre building. 'The front elevation is designed to become a theatrical object itself, a kind of plastic reinterpretation of the decorative theatre curtain. It divides the real life from the magical world of theatre inside. The white decorative wall of this imaginary curtain leans in a soft angle over the incoming spectators and by this gesture invites them to enter the inner spaces of the theatre. The notable part of the front facade is the organic decor with irregularly spaced openings,' the author of the architecture concept, Vladimír Kružík from Helika, explains the artistic intention.

The construction works on the New Theatre in Pilsen progress continuously even in the winter months of 2013 and 2014. In January 2014, the passers-by attention is captured by a giant supporting boarding for the construction of the front wall, which will create the facade of the theatre building. The hanging wall made of cast concrete with a 'bubble perforation' that is unparalleled in the Czech Republic will require the use of a sophisticated construction technology.

In June 2012, the construction of the new theatre building in Pilsen started upon the project by the architecture and design studio Helika based on the original design by the Portuguese architecture studio Contemporânea Lda.
The complex of one theatre and one administration building which is to replace The Chamber Theatre will be made of two almost parallel buildings slightly leaning outwards. The premises will offer a main hall with an auditorium with 461 seats and a studio stage for 150 spectators. The smaller building comprises facilities, offices and dressing rooms. An open public space will be created between these two buildings, facing the Palackého Square. The front facade will be perforated by elliptical openings. Both buildings are situated on a space that was created by demolishing the north side of a square in the 1980's.
