Next to the historic Mariinsky Theatre, built in 1860, and the Concert Hall, which opened in 2006, the Mariinsky II (opened in 2013) completes the theatre and concert complex, which is unique in its artistic and educational capabilities. The building is one of the largest theatre and concert venues in the world. The auditorium seats up to 2,000 people at full capacity. The theatre has 7 storeys above ground and 3 basement levels.

The theater needed an air conditioning and hot water supply system that would allow for perfect comfort both in summer and winter. Challenging factors in the design phase included: large audiences, the multi-tier seating arrangement, acoustic constraints. In addition to keeping in mind economic and environmental aspects.

A Climaveneta centralized hydronic solution based on 4 chilled water remote condenser chillers and 2 chilled water chillers was installed indoors. This solution ensures the highest efficiency with the given parameters, while being perfectly in-line with the innovative approach of the structure.
