NOSPR in Katowice – with care for the smallest detail
When we learned about the planned implementation of the NOSPR in Katowice we wanted to take part in the interior design of the building. We made contact with the creator of this unique project – Tomasz Konior from Konior Studio. The way Tomasz talked about his project at the early stage made us very impressed and made sure that we should get involved. The task was not easy, because the NOSPR interior design is unconventional and very well thought out. We have met the requirements and proposed equipment that will be a coherent whole with architecture, will emphasize its uniqueness and yet be fully functional. This effect was only possible in close cooperation with the architectural studio, which literally lined the whole project perfectly in all the smallest detail. We have joined a project that has been around for some time. Architects outside their own visions also possessed knowledge from many meetings and were well aware of the directions that were implemented or rejected by the investor or building company. To gain this knowledge we have had a number of meetings with Konior Studio to develop the best solution for this facility. We understood that the smallest thing related to shape, texture, color must be consistent to complement the work. The attention to detail and quality in this project was very big. In our offer we have at our disposal several tens of thousands of elements to choose from, but the architects were not satisfy to select the items properly fitting the interior designed. Finally, after many meetings, we have developed a large part of our equipment according to individual projects. Determining the final solution was not the end of the road. We had a difficult time with a public tender. Finally, we won and implemented the project in accordance with the satisfaction of the NOSPR representatives and the KONIOR STUDIO architects. Now we are able to admire the interior of the NOSPR during concerts and events and we understand that we were part of an important puzzle in this project, that furniture in such projects are as important as facade, floor, lighting and ceiling. We are pleased when the decision maker choosing the equipment is aware of how the quality of the furniture affects the final appearance of the entire investment. Thanks to our understanding of the process and the care and attention to details, our company – Human Office Polska – is currently the leader in the field of commercial interior furnishing. The modernity and innovation of our company manifests itself in designing and manufacturing own interior fittings individually tailored to the specific needs of each project. Our company has a well-established position and very extensive experience, and the area of operation covers the whole territory of Poland.
NOSPR in Katowice – is a building in the building. “The building actually consists of two separate segments – the outer ring is only for musicians. (…) Behind this ring is a huge atrium – a great emptiness cut into the building’s solid. At its center lies the gigantic mass of a big concert hall, which can be circumvented from all sides” says the author of the project, Tomasz Konior from Konor Studio’s architectural studio. The four-storey outer ring houses a small chamber (300 spectators), rehearsal rooms, dressing rooms, shops, offices. Adjacent to the atrium – a place for a cafe, a restaurant, a music bookstore. The heart of the building is enclosed in a separate body of the Great Concert Hall, which can accommodate up to 1800 spectators. “The atrium at the hall has graphite black, rough walls of raw concrete with visible formwork. It reminds of the body of coal, or the walls of the deposits of this mineral. Her presence is even more pronounced, as the hall bulges from the main entrance, which also resembles the hull of the ark which moored in the middle of the building. The solidity of the body of the room contrasts with the atrium – the white of its smooth walls and the transparent ceiling “- this aesthetic value is described by Tomasz Konior. However, its most important advantage is acoustics: developed by Kozłowski Acoustics Studio and Japanese specialists from Nagata Acoustics studio. Please, visit NOSPR in Katowice to enjoy the unique atmosphere of this place.
