Details


Description.

Cultural building, entirely dedicated to music, with multiple classrooms, concert halls, spaces for rehearsals, restaurant, etc. The building comprises 9 levels plus coverage, 2 in the basement.
A very important principle to respect in this building is, of course, the good acoustic functioning of the concert halls, which requires a particular structural solution, with a double "envelope" to isolate noise and vibration.

The structural materials adopted are reinforced concrete (in most elements), with metal beams where necessary - namely to support slabs with large spans (constructive simplification and economy) or great height (elimination of formwork).
