Brief information about the project from an architectural point of view:










The new Philharmonic House has its location in the city center at the crossroad of Malopolska and Matejki Streets. Its shape connects to Szczecin city landscape and the very near scenery with many buildings of dropping roofs, church towers and other public constructions. The elevation style emphasizes its vertical lines and slender mass. The building will be an architectural icon of the city and its significant promotion part. The main assignment of the new House is to perform symphonic music. There are two concert halls: the symphonic hall for 951 and chamber hall for 192 visitors. The main entrance is located at Małopolska Street and leads to the representative foyer with a height of three storeys. In the space of the entrance foyer beneath the chamber hall there is located a café too.
