Music softens the walls …


Adapt to make it last

A new architectural identity for the Frédéric Chopin Conservatory
The reception hall between public garden and patio
The wood and glass extension (re-use) is placed on the original building
Plan R + 1: rehabilitation of the performance hall and creation of a rehearsal room
Plan R+3: creation of 2 dance halls

Three eras overlap: parking lot and conservatory from the 70s, auditorium from the 90s and future wooden extension
Cultural facilities nestled between apartment towers
Detail section of the double skin: wood frame, natural insulation, interior skin with the reuse of materials from the existing facade and exterior skin with the reuse of glass office partitions
