La Rambla 61, Barcelona
Project and construction management
Client: Consortium Gran Teatre del Liceu
Built area: 300m ²

Thanks to the ingenuity of the Dr. Higini Arau, it was possible to increase the echo timing of the new Orchestra Rehearsal Chamber avoiding the confusion of sounds. In 1994, the plot that was available for the reconstruction and enlargement of the Gran Teatre del Liceu had some constraints. Therefore, although the choir rehearsal chamber was appropiate, the orchestra rehearsal room had some shortcomings, but now the chamber has an ideal acoustical condition and, in spite of the its reduced measures, the clarity and the intelligibility of the sound of each instrument is very high.
