In 2007, the city parliament of Hamburg approvedthe project of creating a new philharmonic society. And now its construction is completed - on January 11 she celebrated her official opening with two concerts of the symphonic orchestra of the North German radio. The manufacturer of designer bathrooms Duravit provided this building with its own washbasins. The Elbe Philharmonic is not only a concertHall. She started something new in the port of Hamburg. The building stands out among others, but it does not cease to harmonize with the environment. Thanks to the combination of shapes and colors, it looks very attractive, mostly due to the undulating roof, which gives a sense of movement to the clear outline of the facade and consists of glass rectangles lined up in a line. The architects of the Herzog & de MeuronAs a basic concept, the renovation of the historical building of the Kaispeicher warehouse, built in the 1960s, was chosen. The base of red brick and the white twinkling superstructure create a contrast in the architecture of the Elbe Philharmonic - a heavy massive lower part and a wavy top. If you approach the building on the west side, it seems elegant, almost fragile, and, despite the height of 110 meters, it is not bulky at all. However, on the east side, the building seems to lose its height and firmly rests on its base. The colossal main hall accommodates 2 150 seats andall its appearance reflects the main idea of the architects: the desire for ownership and unification. The interior of the hall resembles a huge cave, which was formed under the influence of centuries of influence. The orchestra is "surrounded" by a public from the orchestra, unseen at a glance, and the audience is located between niches and rock-like protrusions. Each of the 10,000 gypsum sand-gray panels that decorate the interior of the hall is made individually. And since each depression, each cavity has its own shape, the sound is distributed throughout the audience, covering the entire audience. In plumbing areas on a parquet floorThe Scola shell from Duravit is installed, which creates a successful combination of classical design with modern trends. The Sundeck mini-pool from Duravit acts as a soloist in the spa area of the Westin Hotel in the Elbe Philharmonic, offering a relaxed relaxation either before or after the evening concert.
