URBAN AGENCY, BEM Architects and bbz have unveiled their proposal for the Kronberg School of Music, in Kronberg, Germany, which includes a music chamber, music school and hotel. Developed as an invited competition entry, the project aims to enhance the area around the Kronberg train station and act as a new “gate” to the city, designed to blend into the forecourt of the station.

The music chamber was shaped by the site's landscape, which is allowed to flow through the building via a foyer. Through the curved design of the building envelope, the music chamber achieves a sculptural form. Large, column-free openings are made possible by way of curved wall cut-outs, which shape both the halls and exterior façade.
