Klangforum Wien

renovation and adaptation of a building from the 1960s

to accommodate the rooms of the klangforum wien, much of the four-storey building was gutted and adapted. a previous production room featuring abundant rooflights was redesigned to serve as a spacious rehearsal room and studio. the wooden sprung floor in this room reflects the architects’ expertise in room acoustics particularly well: the previous asphalt flooring, the technical facilities and the air volume are now covered by soft spruce wood. the upper building floors house the administrative offices of the klangforum.
