For the design of the facade there were two relevant aspects. For one thing the building should demonstrate to the viewer through its presence and materiality, its cultural significance and function without overshadowing the existing Meistersingerhalle. Rather, an introduction to the connected nature of the buildings should emerge, analogous with the interior connection.
The structural steel skeleton is visible behind the glazed building shell. All four facade displayed are developed on the same principle: the opaque, closed glass surfaces along the upper building edge develop over the vertical course of the building into surfaces which are almost transparent. The highest degree of transparency is at the entrance and foyer area, bringing a luminosity to the condition.
A light colored print on the outer side of the large panels gives the glass its opaque effect. The roofing is from a similarly opaque glass is ventilated by solid ceiling plates. A lighted ceiling is designed for the underside of the concert auditorium.
The concert hall is in principle a simple cubic building, that is transformed. This transformation cantilevers the previously upright volume. A steel framework is used in the building shell as the supporting structure of the cantilever. Solid, reinforced concrete construction is used for the auditorium, all spring-mounted and adjusted to the cubature following the house in house principle. Horizontal supporting structures such as the ceilings and roofs are reduced in height by a reinforced concrete structure of support grids.
