Multifunctional centre Liepajas DzintarsRadio str 8, Liepāja

Liepāja concert hall is the new home of Liepāja Symphony Orchestra. In addition to that, the multifunctional hall can be used for dance events, corporate celebrations, rock and pop concerts. The 8-storey complex includes concert hall with 1200 seats, rehearsal rooms; the entrance area can be used for public functions and exhibitions. Connected to the main building there is a commercial and administrative wing. Between the main building and the commercial wing of the building, there is a public square. The design of the Liepāja concert hall was developed by an international team; the technical solutions of the design were also developed in Austria and Latvia, involving various top experts from all over Europe. The expert opinion shows that the solutions used for this concert hall are the most advanced in Europe. The concept of the concert hall involves a so-called “egg within an egg”, with the concert hall designed as a suspended structure attached to the entire framework of the building and the bearing framework being made of structure steel framing, creating the impression that one building has been inserted into another. This solution is to be used in Latvia for the first time, thus being a challenge for builders and structure manufacturers alike.
