Orchestra rehearsal room as an instrument

2022.11.17.

The Competition team was established almost a year ago within Studio IN-EX in order to provide the opportunity for our adventurous collegaues to take part in international architectual tenders.

Their first job was an Austrian competition/application. The Musikprobenzentrum building was designed in the city of Bergenz by renovating the old monumental riding-school.

The building complex is a modern orchestra rehearsal room, which gives place for the Vorarlberg military band, the police band and for the regional symphony orchestra to perform, but at the same time it is used by the Bregenz conservatory and other civil orgainzations.

The fraction of the rehearsal room determins the shape of the building. As an instrument’s reasonating body amplifies the sound giving a unique character to the music it comes to life in the rehearsal room. According tot he calculations of the acoustic model, that was prepared for the premise the instrumants have a flat sound in the hall, so every musician will appropriately hear the sound of every instrument. This results in an outstanding sound quality for rehearsals and possible concerts.

By joining to the remaining rossstal monument and renovatiing it we keep the past/history (nem tudom mi lenne itt a helyesebb) close by renovating the wooden roof, renovating and introducing the remaining stone ló itató and by keeping the special metal grill takarmánytálcák, that will hold place for keeping musical sheets (ebbe a mondatba nagyon belezavarodtam). We plan to use tried and tested building materials, which are not harmful for health for the sustainable renovation of the remaining building and for the sustainable construction of the new building (lehet ezt sem jól fordítottam). The new building’s construction is using regional wooden materials the curtain walls are made of recycled steel. The walls and the ceiling of the warm atmosphered main places are enfolded with an acoustic wooden sheet.

„And people come together sometimes soldiers, sometimes police officers, sometime scholars and sometimes all of them. And they perform, the sound of their instruments fills every corner of the place. They play with pleasure”.

The application vriters sent a pre-built gypsum model of the whole area, where the exact location of the designed building was pre-determined. We had to place the 3D printed version of the concept in this maquet and return the completed model.

What is interesting about this building is that it was completely designed by using Revit and none other graphical programes were used.
