The festival hallai??i??s geometry develops from the surrounding topography placing the building and the already existing festival hall in juxtaposition. The orientation relates to the exisAi??ting landscape, the dynamic gesture of the historical counterpart, as well as the background of rock formaAi??tions. The topographic imprinting in the landscape continues inside the building where two central parameAi??ters direct the architectural approach: the interplay between the buildingai??i??s interior and the surrounding nature as well as a lading concert hall of interAi??national repute. Flowing visual and functional spatial references define the design method: Spaces of different zoning and configurations impleAi??ment the focus on communication and peace, dynamics and concentraAi??tion. Architectural conditions in the buildingai??i??s interior are devolved into a subtle control of the motion sequences through their sensual perception. The access staircase is integrated into the terrainai??i??s topography and leads visitors into the buildingai??i??s interior.
The foyer allows a wide range of impressions of the surrounding natural environment as well as to the existing summer festival hall. In the opposite direction, a staircase leads to the gallery on the level above where the relationship between interior and exterior relations is once again impressively experienced by the extensively glass-fronted western faAi??ade. The concert hall, which is situated at the centre of the building like a shell and is anchored to the rock at the back, is connected to the foyer via two accesses on each level. The passage from the foyer into the concert hall is accomAi??panied by a spatial and atmospheric transformation: Dynamics, variability and asymmetry of the foyer give way to static peace and orthogonality.
