Bratislava Congress Centre, Slovakia

Efterklang has been working on the project proposal since July 2020 and was main consultant with Ian Ritchie involved in the concept development with the architect. As such, we have been able to shape the space, determine the volumetry, operate under these different scenarios and thus define the flexibility required for the development.

During the submission, we have been able to use our extensive 3D acoustic simulation expertise and generate acoustic quality maps of the venues in all its configurations. This led Efterklang to present the project to the City and Government officials via TEAMS alongside the architects.

Juraj Benetin, the founder and principal architect for Compass Architekti said that 'the project will be essential for the return of culture to life in Slovakia'.

Juraj is an acclaimed musician and this made for the experience of working with him on the acoustics of his hall, that much more interesting.
