Toho Gakuen Munetsugu Hall

桐朋学園宗次ホール

Tokyo, Japan

University
2354 m2

We designed a concert hall “made of wood” located on the campus of the Toho Gakuen College of Music, a top-notch music college in Japan.
This wooden building applies CLT hybrid (cedar and cypress) panels to form a folded-panel structure, with these CLT panels themselves functioning as the interior and reflectors for the hall.
In other words, we aimed to design the concert hall itself as a giant wooden instrument, and succeed in providing an ideal acoustic environment for excellent performances that people will experience here.
The exterior is covered with wooden louvers, evoking the strings of instruments, and are arranged as if they beat out a rhythm and add resonance to the entire hall.
