The new building of the Slovak National Theatre was designed by Slovak architects Martin Kus, Pavol Pak and Peter Bauer whose project was selected out of fifty three entries. The building has seven floors, over 2000 rooms and three main auditoriums (Opera and Ballet Hall, Drama Hall, Studio). In addition it has a restaurant that seats 120, a club, a caf, a reading caf and a kitchen.

 Several artworks are located in the interior and exterior spaces of the SND New Building, among them a fountain by Alexander Bikovi, Ija Skoek and Peter Bauer in front of the building. The front foyer features Spring by Pavel Bauer and the painter Duan Buil; Cascade by Peter Roller and Two Towers by the architect Peter Bauer are in front of the building. Apart from the artworks, which are an integral part of the premises, theatre costumes and exhibitions are on display in the corridors of the building.

The theatre building opened on 14 April 2007 in a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by the President of the Slovak Republic Ivan Gasparovi and the Minister of Culture Marek Maari.
