This multifunctional music and theatre centre - comprising three halls, office spaces, studios and classrooms - accommodates a variety of users. The individual halls - each with its own atmosphere - are free to programme independently: thanks to box-in-box constructions, none of the three is inconvenienced by the others. The audience finds - besides the actual performance - the experience perhaps even more important. That is why the building employs all kinds of resources. For instance, a sophisticated lighting system is able to change the architecture of the three foyers into individual interiors with distinctive ambiences. Also, the foyers can be interconnected as a sequence linked by ornament on the rear wall. A footbridge connects this area to the adjacent music centre. The required facilities were cleverly assembled within a striking complex on a cramped urban site nearby the railway. It has a huge outdoor staircase that faces the station.
