chartier-corbasson converts old swimming pool into modern concert hall

a shiny new façade accompanies interior renovations of a former swimming pool, which was transformed into a top of the line concert hall and recording studio by paris-based chartier-corbasson architects. a system of golden stainless steel wall panels were applied to the building, referencing the musical instruments found within.
the geometry of the design was arrived at via computer algorithm. each panel is layered on a steel frame, and measures in at a slim 30cm in total thickness. the public enters under a raised portion of the metal ‘skin’, into a color saturated foyer area. the basement — former pool and locker rooms — features the most change, and includes three recording studios, dressing rooms, and auxiliary storage areas.
