Amare in The Hague, The Hague, Netherlands

The concert hall in Amare, the new performing arts centre in The Hague, is clad with GRC elements manufactured by GRCA Full Member BB fiberbeton A/S.

The expectations for aesthetics and acoustics were high for the prestigious concert hall in Amare. As such, GRC was chosen for its formable and versatile quality, making it ideal for creating the decorative curved shapes of the internal wall cladding and balcony edges. The GRC elements are carefully designed to not only look aesthetically impressive, but also enhance the acoustic performance.

Impressive acoustics

The GRC cladding is deliberately designed to ensure a superior acoustic experience. The ability to manufacture thin-shell and formable elements made it possible to design elements with shapes and curvatures that all ensure an optimal spread in the reflection of sound frequencies and create a spatial three-dimensional experience.

A hidden and easy mounting solution

The GRC elements for the concert hall are mounted with embedded brackets, and like most of the mounting principles from BB fiberbeton, this solution results in a hidden installation without visible screws. The thinness and low weight of the elements makes the installation simple and easy to handle.
