1:44 DR Koncerthuset

Koncertsalen is amongst the highest ranking concert halls in the world

Koncertsalen is the biggest of DR Koncerthusets studios. The stage is in the middle of the hall, while the 1800 seats go all the way round on multi-level terracing. The amphitheatre structure is inspired by the Berlin Philharmonia, while the warm, golden colours of the hall have been carried over from the old DR Concert Hall. Behind the stage towers the organ, and the atmospheric indirect lighting by way of reflectors on the walls completes the elegant idiom of the hall.

The impressive structure with its seating for up to 1800 guests. The acoustics are top notch, and all guests enjoy a feeling of close proximity to the stage.

The best modern acoustics

The opening of DR Koncerthuset means a national and international concert venue for Denmark and a new architectural landmark for the capital. Jean Nouvel’s unique building puts Copenhagen on a level with other cities around the world which provide the best modern acoustic and visual setting for concertgoers.

As you approach DR Koncerthuset a fabulous sight greets you. The blue frontage is monumental, yet airy, as if the building had been carved out of the sky. The frontage is a semi-transparent screen and the images projected onto the vast surfaces create constantly varying impressions which make the whole structure look as if it is in motion, organic and alluring.

Koncerthuset is designed by Jean Nouvel, who is also the architect behind the prize-winning Institute of the Arab World in Paris, and the acoustics are designed by probably the best acoustician in the world, Yasuhisa Toyota, who can also claim credit for the acoustics of Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.

Studio 3

Studio 3 can be customized for any event, since there is no fixed stage or audience seating. The black walls in alternating polished and matte panelling have a wealth of hatches that can be opened and closed for sound-regulating effects. It is clear that the black-and-white design of the hall is inspired by a grand piano.

Studio 4

Studio 4 is also flexible as a concert hall, where the stage is built up of platforms and the audience sit on seats arranged for the event. The walls and ceiling are in deep red shades, and the soundregulating wall panels are designed like oblong, triangular ‘boxes’. This means that the hall can be adapted to a wide variety of events.
