Muziekgebouw was designed as a highly transparent building, offering views across the harbour

Muziekgebouw AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS

The Muziekgebouw concert hall opened in Amsterdam in 2005. Designed by 3XN, it provided new shared premises for two well-established professional musical institutions; the Ijsbreker and the BIMhuis. It’s all about music, providing two concert venues for contemporary classical and contemporary jazz music. Positioned as a landmark at the tip of the Oosterlijke Handelskade pier, it is a catalyst for change in its neighbourhood. It is a building designed to attract public life and allow open flow through the day and night, independent of musical programming.

Tivoli Concert Hall COPENHAGEN, DENMARK

In 2004 3XN won the restoration of the Tivoli Concert Hall and a number of new buildings in the famous amusement garden. The concert hall was carefully restored and improved in order to live up to modern requirements for stage space, space for orchestra, acoustics and seating comfort. In addition to the concert hall, 3XN designed a new circular foyer on three floors with lounge and bar overlooking the Tivoli Gardens and cafe with outdoor seating. The façade has white lacquered, twisted aluminum strings that capture and reflect the sun and Tivoli’s many lamps at night. The pattern on the façade is also reminiscent of the classic Harlequin pattern found many places in Tivoli. ● The Tivoli Concert Hall saw a major renovation and extension by 3XN in 2004, with new buildings added
