Andermatt Concert Hall

Een concertzaal van wereldklasse op 1 400 m boven de zeespiegel: de Andermatt Concertzaal is het hart van de herontwikkeling van Andermatt tot een van de grootste badplaatsen van Zwitserland. Elk facet van het op originaliteit geïnspireerde interieur van deze flexibele zaal met 650 zitplaatsen is akoestisch geoptimaliseerd; een elektronisch nagalmsysteem verlengt de nagalm discreet om de akoestiek aan te passen aan de verschillende muziekstijlen, ensembles en de grootte van het publiek.

Andermatt Concert HallView from the balcony: The glass façade provides natural daylight and a view to the mountains, while passers-by have an enticing perspective into the hall. Every facet of the origami-inspired interior was optimised in angle to provide early sound reflections to the musicians and to every audience member.

The golden surfaces of the stage wall are acoustically transparent: these hide acoustic reflectors and absorption surfaces, which are used to optimize the orchestral balance and projection to the audience. The facets of the balcony fronts provide cross-communication reflections between the musicians.

Andermatt Concert HallFor the reverberation system, over 30 microphones and 70 loudspeakers have been almost invisibly integrated into the architecture. The system works together with the optimised natural acoustics and enables the reverberation time to be subtly extended for classical concerts.

The angled facets to the side of the audience have been acoustically optimised to create lateral reflections for an immersive, enveloping natural acoustic.

Andermatt Concert HallThe project started life as an underground conference room. By raising the roof in the majority of the space, the acoustic volume was doubled and a visual connection to the surrounding mountains was created. Due to an access road across the site, only a portion of the roof could be elevated, leading to a lower ceiling over the stage: reflectors and absorption panels in the stage ceiling counteract the height difference and acoustically connect the two areas of the hall.

Andermatt Concert HallA retractable seating system enables up to 9 rows of seating to disappear under the main balcony to create a flat floor for banquets and other conference events. The suspended reflectors provide reflections to the entire audience and between the musicians: their shape was optimised using 3D acoustic software.
