History in the re-creating

Originally constructed according to the plans of Max Berg in 1911-13, Centennial Hall was an early landmark of reinforced concrete architecture. As a symbol of the city of Wroclaw, it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2006.

Improved acoustic performance

On completion of the very complex renovation works, sound experts praised improvement in acoustic qualities of the main hall.

Chapman Taylor re-arranged the interiors (public spaces and the back of house), modifying the functional aspects and increased seating numbers from 6,500 to 10,000; all within the constraints of very strict conservation requirements.
