Project Size



2012 – 2016


In autumn 2016, the Barenboim-Said Academy opened in the southern part of the former magazine building of the Staatsoper Unter den Linden in Berlin, Germany.


Technical building services: Planning and supervision, sanitary systems, sprinkler systems, heating systems, ventilation and air conditioning systems, cooling ceilings, electrical systems, communications systems, conveyance systems, building control systems, measurement and control systems, stage technology.

Unique / Key Features

The heart of the building is the Pierre Boulez Hall, which appears to float in the room with the form of a double curved ellipse, but it allows for the most diverse combinations of the performance venues, the area of the stage and the placement of the artists. ZWP Ingenieur-AG is as technical building services company responsible for the planning and implementation of technical building equipment. This included the implementation of the complex stage technology of the hall: The seating can be pulled out horizontally in drawers or stowed under the entrance level via a telescopic grandstand. This allows the space to be flexibly adapted to the use and to provide up to 682 seats.
