Saint Petersburg, Russia — 2012
The Concert Hall, together with the historic building of the Mariinsky Theater, and its New Stage known as Mariinsky-2, constitutes a large theater and concert complex. After a fire broke out in September 2003, it was decided to build a new Concert Hall on the site of the old building of Stage Props Workshops.
A.Len Architectural Bureau designed auxiliary buildings next to the Concert Hall of the Mariinsky Theater, housing a restaurant, a cafe, a music store, and rehearsal rooms.
The look of the building continues the motifs of the prior stage of construction. Longitudinal facades feature a rhythmic pattern of repeating modular elements with large glazing surfaces. The end sections are of more dynamic design with red-brick relief textures resembling the folds of the theater curtain.
