        Both the auditorium and the chamber music hall are technically state-of-the-art and provide excellent acoustic conditions. The 400/600-seat experimental theater hall was designed to offer almost unlimited versatility to accommodate a wide variety of shows.

        The scheme integrates three differentiated parts unified under one wave-shape roof, a symbolic form that represents the sound waves of the music. The three buildings, within a single envelope, are distributed around a large covered open central space, conceived as an interactive atrium. This public facility allows for the development of a new program of activities, thus contributing to the regeneration of the local area by offering a range of valuable cultural services to the wider community.
