The innovative concert hall comes complete with sound-proofing, sound locks and load bearing systems which offer protection from external noise as well as from air conditioning, lighting and noise from other technical equipment.
Designed specifically for acoustic music, the Fartein Valen hall is home to the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra. Each of the 1,500 seats are designed to optimise sound in the hall, covered in purple mohair velvet and set a distance apart. The 175 tonne ceiling can be lowered 6 metres by 16 motors to enhance the volume and acoustics of a performance.
