Finkenberg, 22nd February 2021 – At the end of February, the “soft tones” of the digger could be heard moving onto the building site in Finkenberg in Zillertal, marking the start of construction of a new music pavilion with rehearsal rooms and store. ATP Innsbruck had been commissioned with the integrated design of the pavilion following its success in a competition in 2018.
The concept embraces both local construction traditions and modern design. Consciously rejecting “alien” forms and materials, it adopts the traditional, regionally rooted method of building in timber on a stone base – interpreted in a contemporary manner. The project is successfully inserted into the village context thanks to its respectful relationship with the church porch and its creation of a new forecourt, which acts as both an open entrance to the historic cemetery and a new meeting place for the village.
There are plans to mark the laying of the foundation stone in mid-April in the form of a major event with “drums and trumpets”.
