BUDAPEST, BUDAI FONÓ MUSIC HALL RECONSTRUCTION AND EXTENSION 2017
The Fonó Music Hall -founded in 1995- gives a friendly environment, to the national and international folk music and dance, to introduce themselves and occasionally hosts the different trades of global jazz music, as well. The Fonó Hall's main goal is to keep the Hungarian folk music and all the related musical trends alive by making them digitally available. They also attempt to introduce all these arts to as many people as possible.
During the reconstruction the building's main spaces remain unmodified such as the auditorium, the small stage, the social areas and the water block. The currently inefficient hall extension is getting knocked down, but a similar multifunctional space will appear in the new building.
The intention is to create a small-scale functional space by separating and saving all the present functions and connections. A new construction will be built around the current structure, made of new and modern materials while the building will keep all the traditions related to the Fonó music house These modifications will open up alternative places for more private and intimate events besides the larger social programs.
The new building addition uses natural materials - however the structural demands of the new building were of our concerns too. Comprehending these aspects of the new building, we choose to use glue laminated wooden elements, which both solve the structural questions and represent a worthy legacy to the Fonó's traditions and values.
