￼THESSALONIKI CONCERT HALL
It is a modern, of international standards, cultural and conference centre, with the capacity to host a wide range of festivities such as concerts, theatrical and opera shows, ballet, art and culture exhibitions, as far as conferences. The Thessaloniki Concert Hall is a handicap friendly building and provides an underground parking of 230 car spaces.
In M1 Building you can find the main concert hall, the reception hall (foyer), a conference hall of 50 seats, the offices for the administration and technical services, as well as the necessary facilities for the support of the events. The building’s external appearance is in perfect harmony with the city’s history, combining decorative elements both from its byzantine past as well as its contemporary cosmopolitan role. The M2 Building, designed by the famous architect Arata Isozaki, is a unique construction that embodies all the virtues of contemporary architecture. Geometrical lines, large glass surfaces and metallic details, constitute an image of imposing simplicity that contradicts, yet stands as an equivalent to the neighboring M1 Building. Filled with natural light, the foyer of the new building offers an exceptional view.
