Architecture agency Tetrarc has attired the Maison des Arts, Saint Herblain, in a shimmering golden envelope, a luminescent casing whose interior spaces unfold ‘like a living body, irrigated from its centre by a beating heart,’ to quote Jean-Pierre Macé, architect and co-founder of Tetrarc. The amphitheatre is not visible from the building’s exterior, and functions as an ‘incandescent case’, accommodating the music school at the centre of the project. The dark walls within this large space for music making provide an eloquent backdrop for the playful arrangement of sound absorbing acoustic speakers clad in traffic red, using Vibrasto 10 and 20 merely glued over wooden boxes.
