At a time when building a new has never been easier than today, special attention should be paid to use the existing urban structure. The Music School in Warsaw has adapted decaying buildings. Extending them increased the quality and functionality of the complex. The multifunctional foyer, lit by a daylight, is the connection of the old and the new. The heart of this building is the concert hall - divided in half for musicians and music lovers. Its unusual circular plan comes from the desire to integrate around the music. The acoustic qualities were developed with Nagata Acoustics.
