Concrete Music Conservatory in France

Dominique Coulon & Associés is a studio of architects based in Strasbourg, France. The notions of sustainable development, respect for the historic substance and for ecological responsibility are a part of main concerns of the agency. It is from this perspective that they set up their last project : a sublime dance, music and theater conservatory in Belfort, Alsace.

Nested on the heights of the city, between the famous Lion and the forest, this UFO of grey concrete is dressed in a texture which evokes vegetable or marble veins. The various spaces seem fitted some in the others, and every internal room has an acoustics adapted to practice of a specific instrument.
