The continuity was evident especially in the outdoor furnishings to the history of the building. There are still old geometry and vertical alignment dominate.

When looking at the floor plan, we recognize that the building will be embraced by an outer ring. Within this component are above all service facilities. On the one hand the main elements – the Philharmonic Orchestra and Chamber halls, are thus very much. Furthermore, the connection is defined by this parameter ring better from the building to the outside atmosphere.
