La Cité Musicale
Work began on the project−designed by the prestigious Japanese architect, Shigeru Ban, back in July 2014. The structural work was finally completed in March, giving way to the construction of the geometric reticulated wooden structure covering the exterior of the auditorium and the inner halls, where we are present.
The products we are working with are American oak and Oregon pine, oiled with OSMO hardwax-oil. The most significant aspect of our product revolves around the soundproofing, crucial in the halls, and fire performance (in line with the French fire performance regulations DTU Bois Feu 88. Spanish fire performance regulation: UNE EN 14342).
With a total area 300,000 m2, the island will offer a wide ranges of activities related with art & culture, leisure and well-being: concerts, exhibitions, permanent and temporary installations, parks, gardens, restaurants, etc. Without a doubt, one of the most ambitious and referential projects of the new European cultural and artistic space, and of which we are delighted to form part.
