Facade design for the multi-functional and event hall in Baku, planning period 2008.

The entrance and facade were newly designed for the existing building of the festival hall in Baku. A flat water basin with illuminated water fountains is traversed by a footbridge. This leads directly to the main entrance, which is framed from backlit alabaster and gold leaf. The traditional architecture and ornamentation is combined with a modern and geometrically clear design vocabulary. A bright natural stone that is floodlit from the ground forms the closed facade parts. Typical local ornaments in steel can be found on doors, windows and the stage tower.
