Text description provided by the architects. Heritage-listed Waidburg Castle, a solitary structure that today serves as Natters city hall, now looks onto a largely horizontal structure that, despite its distinctive form, looks as if it had always been there.
At the heart of the design is a passe-partoutlike roofed gallery that frames the club house and the festival square with its stage as if they were gems and at the same time functions as a landscape viewing platform. Reminiscences of gazebo architecture are by all means intentional. The trees – especially the 100-year old chestnut trees – are integrated into the design, providing shade and an atmospherically dense outdoor space.
The music rehearsal building is a timber structure lined inside with white fir panelling attuned to the acousticrequirements and outside with patinated copper.
