As the winner of international competition, the design of Barcelona-based studio Barozzi Veiga is characterized by a set of white pitched roofs with vertical and geometric ice-like shapes, these characteristics identify the Philharmonic Hall with its surrounding context.

Externally, the building has a white concrete structure covered with a translucent glass facade, it is a bright, transparent, and upstanding object when the lights came on.

The building houses a symphony hall for 1,000 spectators, a hall for chamber music for 200 spectators, a multifunctional space, and a spacious hall. The interiors are simple, large skylights being their utmost defining trait.

Inspiration from architects:

The building is configured by a synthetic, but at the same time complex volume, which is resolved through a continuous promenade, which connects all these functions along a single public path through all the levels of the building.
