Spunky Tiny Traveling Theater is Topped With Recycled Coal Scuttles

London-based studio Aberrant Architecture designed this awesome Tiny Traveling Theater that has a roof of recycled coal scuttles. Paying tribute to 17th century coal salesman Thomas Britton, who started the "Small Coal Man's Musick Club" above his Clerkenwell coal shed, the red mini theater made its debut during the recent Clerkenkenwell Design Week and is now touring England.
Aberrant tried to stay as true to the original music club as possible by giving the door leading to the small theater a boat handle and using coal scuttles for the roof. Skylights are hidden in the chimneys , bringing natural light inside, while a conical funnel pulses sounds from the indoor performance outdoors so that passersby can also enjoy the show.
The theater is towed by a VW split screen camper van and features three recessed booths that can accommodate up to six people. Mobile and small, this temporary space allows for a very intense emotional experience, which can be preceded and followed by drinks outside at a pop-up bar  comprised of little more than a folding table, some chairs and ice buckets to keep drinks cold! Come to think of it, what else do you need?
