Designed by the famous French architect, Jean Nouvel, DR Koncerthuset is home to the Danish National Symphony Orchestra as well as the Danish National Chamber Orchestra, Danish National Vocal Ensemble, Danish National Concert Choir, Danish National Girls Choir, Danish National Children’s Choir, Danish National Sprouts Choir and DR Big Band.
Inspired by Danish author Peter Høeg and his famous book ‘Smilla’s Sense of Snow‘, Jean Nouvel designed DR Koncerthuset’s magnificent blue structure to symbolize an ice glacier. The concert hall itself represents a meteor, wedged into the ice. The colour palette established for the website takes its inspiration, in turn, from both the exterior and interior design of the building. The distinctive blue of the exterior is applied as a key element throughout the website. The purple, turquoise, red and concrete grey colours of the building’s interior are adjusted and fine tuned for online display used as accent colours for various ensembles.
