tonhalle zurich

temporary concert hall

2 / 11

Location: Zahnradstrasse 22, Zürich
Client: Tonhalle-Gesellschaft Zürich
Status: built
Project: 2015-2017

A provisional, high quality acoustic concert hall for the Tonhalle Orchestra will be built in an existing structure on the Maag site. It has been designed for use during the three-year reconstruction period of the Tonhalle commencing in summer 2017. The temporary concert hall includes an entrance foyer, ticket office and adjoining rooms such as recording rooms for the concertists, lounges, large storage areas with direct stage access as well as office areas and administration.

Visitors entering the former events hall will see the wooden concert hall installation with its honest, unvarnished, temporary haptic.
The visitor is led naturally around the installation to find the entrances to the uncompromising, precise wooden interior.
The rectangular acoustic room, constructed from oiled spruce, welcomes lovers of classical music and lets the visitor experience the precisely positioned shifting wall panels that form the space. The concert hall offers 1220 seats in total with an orchestral stage measuring 19 x 11 metres.
