Sculptural objects for House of Music
Text: Axel Dürheimer
COOP HIMMELB(L)AU presented yesterday the final scheme design for the House of Music in Aalborg, Denmark. Within a close collaboration between the builder, Fonden Musikkens Hus i Nordjylland and COOP HIMMELB(L)AU the schematic design has been revised and finalized.
Modifications in relation to the original layout presented in September 2008 comprise amongst others the large stairs leading up to the façade of the house fronting Limfjorden. Instead an open entrance at ground level has been created, located between sculptural building objects of the Foyer and Restaurant. The different volumes and surfaces create an architectural expression suited to the multi-functional and synergetic nature of the building.
