Peter Haimerl, concert hall in Blaibach (Germany)

 
Situated close to the Czech border, Blaibach has a new village square where the concert hall built by the German architect Peter Haimerl is hidden in a tilted box incrusted into the ground. In reference to the Bavarian town’s stone carving tradition, the facades of this solitaire of a building are wrapped with plates of granite. The inclination above the slope gives way to a staircase leading to the foyer below. Inside, the auditorium is clad with concrete scales composed according to acoustic specifications. The unfaced surfaces receive a texture created by the light filtering in through the large slits.
