Concert, Congress and Hotel in Malmo, by Schmidt Hammer Lassen
Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architect, the international practise founded in Denmark in 1986 has won the competition to design a 54,000 sq m concert, congress and hotel complex in Malmo, Sweden.
From Schmidt Hammer Lassen’s own website:
The new building complex is situated on Universitetsholmen in Malmö. The building consists of a composition of cubic volumes that are mutually twisted and given different sizes to meet the directions and building heights of the surrounding city. The façades are designed with a homogeneous expression to make the composition appear as one architectonic sculpture.
From the inside, the three volumes that hold the large symphony hall, the flexible hall and the conference hall, will stand as clearly defined elements. The building shapes appear as a three dimensional composition in laminated wood with warm, red colours.
