Mostlikely Architecture builds ‘Cultural Pavilion’ in Austria

 

Vienna-based Mostlikely Architecture takes over the construction of the ‘Cultural Pavilion’ a new mobile concert hall located in Semmering, Austria, built entirely from regional wood and without the use of climate-damaging building materials. The structure will serve as the hall and main venue for the Kultur.Sommer.Semmering festival, a two-month cultural event in the mountains. Due to its modular design, the framework can be dismantled and reassembled in weeks proposing a fast and sustainable solution for cultural events. At the same time, the pavilion can be adapted and expanded to meet the needs of future festival seasons.

local spruce and larch assemble the minimal pavilion

 

The minimal pavilion blends playfully into the surrounding forest landscape enjoying views of the Semmering mountain scenery. The interdisciplinary office follows high sustainability standards for the construction using only local, certified wood and working with regional companies. A total of around 75 tons of spruce and larch are processed, and the climate-damaging building materials of concrete and steel are dispensed with. The air-conditioning system applies the chimney effect to avoid the energy-intensive use of technical systems and optimizes natural ventilation.

gently sloping lines and inclines define the design

 

Attending to high sound-aesthetic standards, the stage opens up and, together with the wooden surfaces, allows for harmonious acoustics and sound propagation. Large panoramic windows offer a view over the forests almost as far as Vienna. Adjacent to the concert hall is the entrance foyer with a covered terrace, providing festival guests with an impressive view of the surrounding landscape. The silhouette of the minimalist Cultural Pavilion is characterized by gently sloping lines and inclines. In the interior, light curtains, reduced technical elements, and lighting put the focus on the spatial qualities, the scenery, and the artistic performances.
