The Wejherowo Philharmonic Hall is a modern, eye-catching building – its boat-like shape denoting the Baltic Sea and the region’s strong Kashubian embroidery traditions.

Architects from APP Arch-Studio created a building that serves as a multi-functional cultural centre, hosting important musical events, painting and photography exhibitions, as well as theatrical performances and film screenings.

Combining all these functions was made possible due to a clear division of the building into two spatial modules: the glazed part acts as a philharmonic hall, while the second part is visual and exhibit-like, comprising of photography studios and a small cinema room.

A large proportion of the building, including the concert hall, foyer and café are glazed to provide optimum thermal comfort and plenty of natural daylight for visitors and staff, the building owner chose Guardian SunGuard SN 70/41 coated solar control glass, which provides high transparency and a neutral, reflective appearance.

The interior of the concert hall and glazed areas of the cultural centre are therefore protected from overheating and glare from the sun, while at the same time, allowing visitors and staff to enjoy virtually unlimited access to natural daylight.
