This nice, conventional building is the Festival Hall of the Tiroler Festspiele Erl, located in Austria alongside the "Passionsspielhaus" or "Passion Playhouse" next door. This piece of architectural geometry was brought into existence by Delugan Meissl Associated Architects, and is shaped this way to fit the topography of the landscape and contrast the white playhouse next to it.
"[The Building's] positioning relates to the existing landscape, the dynamic gesture of the historical counterpart, as well as the background rock formations. The topographic imprinting in the landscape continues inside the building where two central parameters direct the architectural approach: the interplay between the building's interior and the surrounding nature as well as the concentrated, spatial composition of a functionally optimised concert hall of international repute."
"The approach to the concert hall is effectively emphasised by the gentle rise of the entry level. The concert hall, which is situated at the centre of the building like a shell and is anchored to the rock at the back, is connected to the foyer via two accesses on each level."
"Architectural conditions in the building's interior are devolved into a subtle control of the motion sequences through their sensual perception. The access staircase is integrated into the terrain's topography and leads visitors into the building's interior. The foyer allows a wide range of impressions of the surrounding natural environment as well as to the existing summer festival hall."
"Flowing visual and functional spatial references define the design method: Spaces of different zoning and configurations implement the focus on communication and peace, dynamics and concentration."
