Viennese architectural studio Coop Himmelb(l)au has completed work on the House of Music in Aalborg, Denmark, a venue that combines a school and concert hall in an open layout.

U-shaped rehearsal and training rooms surround the concert hall, which seats about 1,300. Connecting these spaces is a five-story-tall foyer with observation balconies that allow students and visitors to look into the hall and practice rooms. The foyer also offers expansive windows overlooking a fjord; meeting spots for students, teachers, and artists; and three additional rooms.

The concert hall’s exterior cubic profile contrasts with the flowing shapes and curves within. Orchestra seats and rounded balconies are arranged to provide optimal acoustics and stage views. Amorphous plaster structures on the walls and height-adjustable ceiling suspensions further contribute to the listening experience.
