Extraordinary Wave-Shaped Concert Hall Placed Atop Old Warehouse Building

The fans of philharmonic in Germany, Hamburg are so excited about the new look of the Elbphilharmonie building that started to buy the tickets already  to the events right after the inauguration which takes places on January 11th, 2017. Such a look is a result of a skillful job of Herzog & De Meuron company and the shiny roof is covering an old brick warehouse, built in order to provide an excellent soundproof arena, which is able to accommodate 2, 100 viewers. The whole construction of the project is already on for ages and finally sees its end, including the remodeled interior, so the building should be ready for hangover to operators on October 31st, 2016.


Even though the construction took so much time, the result is truly impressive. The Philharmonie is located in Hamburg’s Hafencity quarter, just on the river Elbe, and thanks to 1, 100 panels, the walls of the building reflect the waters, while the D shaped windows remind you the fish mouths.

Besides its main function of being a philharmonie, the building also hosts a 250 room hotel, 45 private apartments, two more concert halls and even a public area with panoramic views over the water.

But actually the delayed construction can be easily explained once you enter the inside- the careful selection of state-of-the-art materials, white skin panels, providing the acoustic, the glass flowing wall which continues aquatic there – all these details had to be carefully designed! But luckily, very soon, this unique building will open its door for all the visitors!
