The Steven Holl architecture group is going to create a concert hall over the House of Culture in Ostrava, Czech Republic. The new concert hall is going to be made entirely of zinc and is going to be built over the House of Culture. The Interior of the concert hall is going to have maple-wood interiors that contrast with the modern zing outside surface. The building is going to have a narrow front and a broader base. The design is supposed to resemble a perfect acoustic case, through its narrowing design.
An architect named Jaroslav Fragner, who modeled the building with ceramic tiles and vast columns, built the House of Culture in 1961. The new addition is going to add more dimension and contemporary style to the historic building and is sure to entice many people to visit. The concert hall is going to contain a large auditorium that faces the rear side of the complex. The hall is going to face a park, which can be viewed from a massive window. Currently, the House of Culture has two separate wings that can see each other from their windows. The two sides are now going to be joined through the new concert hall that is set to span across a vast majority of the building.
Members of a jury voted the concert hall on, and six out of seven people decided that the design was going to be approved. The hall is going to be used by the Janáček Philharmonic Orchestra and is going to create a place that music lovers can visit. The new performance space is also going to have state-of-the-art acoustic features that are designed by Nagata Acoustics.
