The Centre was developed as a multi-functional performance complex and permanent residence for the Bohuslav Martinu Philharmonic Orchestra. As the building is situated on a major intersection, the auditorium had to be isolated from all external noise, vibration etc. and for operational reasons, a circulation zone around the auditorium was a strict requirement. The oval central space is surrounded by offices, rehearsal rooms which all require natural ventilation and daylight. The versatile nature of the central halls, with retractable seats, creates flexible spaces used for staging operas, concerts, balls and conferences. These functions are served by adjacent hospitality areas situated on different levels.
