Successful transitions are what make music special – and architecture, too. The Musiktheater in Linz, designed by British architect Terry Pawson, has plenty of both to offer. From the outside, the building gives the impression of an open curtain guiding visitors inwards. Pawson wanted to create a “living room for the city” near the Volksgarten park, with a large entrance front and an auditorium with close to 1,000 seats.

The Musiktheater’s timeless aesthetic results from the high-grade materials and reduced formal language used. Light-colored marble in the foyer, acacia wood in a red hue for the lamellar wall cladding and gilt balustrades for the balconies inside the gallery theater make for a festive ambience. Successful transitions were also important when it came to the doors: The planners decided to use the concealed "Tectus TE 640 3D" hinges for the 110 Millimeter-thick sound-proof doors. These ensure the doors may be adjusted smoothly and allow for maintenance-free slide bearing technology to be used. They are also able to bear a maximum load of 200 kg. All conventional motorized locks may be used with the "Tectus Energy" model variant – without compromising in terms of aesthetic or acoustic qualities. The flush-mount doors are thus definitely part of the subtleties that define the Musiktheater’s elegant look. (am)
