Can we extend cultural heritage through open buildings?
Meistersingerhalle Concert Hall

City of Nuremberg
Matthijs LaRoi Architects
The Nuremberg Concert Hall enriches the cultural city of Nuremberg with a unique musical experience in which music and space become one and extends the historically rich heritage of the neighbouring Meistersingerhalle.
Based on Nuremberg’s landmark, the duality of its twin castle, two buildings side by side create a synergetic connection to a coherent unity. Connected in a symbolic ‘band’, a circulating podium made of natural stone links the ensemble. The solid base grounds the structure, which creates an inviting lightness through its vertical foyer as a central distributor together with a translucent, energy-optimized roof construction.
