Located in the heart of Innsbruck, the House of Music is the home of a vast Concert Hall and a renowned Conference Centre. It has a total surface area of almost 8,000 m2. This ambitious project by ARGE Strolz and Dietrich-Untertrifaller Bregenz proposes the stunning transformation in terms of the style and size of the spaces, based on meticulous research aimed at improving the usability, illumination and acoustics: it is thus no surprise that it has been appreciated at international level and nominated for the biennial EU Mies Award 2019 for the finest European projects of contemporary architecture.
The external façade of this impressive multi-storey building has a distinctive and bold contrast between the wide concrete-effect pavements, the wall coverings in total black, the ultra-modern full-length glass windows and the immaculately groomed surrounding green areas. The varying outdoor light conditions help to create different sensations, from the light-drenched hours during the day to the theatrical atmosphere in the evening. For all the outdoor flooring and the panoramic roof-top terrace, both these renowned architectural firms opted for ceramics by Marca Corona: the concrete-effect collection Matrix, in the shade of silver in the thickened version of 20mm combines maximum properties of resistance and safety with outstanding good looks, with a distinctly industrial feel. Inside, the architectural choices exploit the large open spaces, minimalist furnishings and full-length glass windows, which ensure maximum visual continuity between the inside and outside, allowing natural light to bathe every corner. Inside, the finest materials such as wood, concrete and glass are used alternately in a fascinating pattern of light and shade, with touches of colour here and there. Yet again, we can find ceramic surfaces by Marca Corona: Matrix Silver for the floor and wall coverings in the thickness of 10mm that give an urban character to the entire structure and cover almost 4 thousand m2: from the Hall to the library, from the corridors to the numerous lecture halls and conference rooms, where Marca Corona plays a major role in this sumptuous project of great architectural value.
