The new auditorium with the main entrance foyer completes the program of the youth music school, finished in 1999. The extension, which was designed ten years after the original project is located in the narrow space between the old school and the new youth school and creates a new passage between them.
The auditorium is visible as an irregular round shape with a gallery level.
Bricks cover the façade, referring in material and shape to the existing buildings.
Ornamentation: The façade pattern was inspired by sound waves and therefore indicates the content of the building on the exterior.
