The House of Knowledge in Bochum is set to become a modern educational center, bringing together a variety of facilities under one roof, including the city library, the adult education center (Volkshochschule or VHS), UniverCity, and a market hall. These institutions have different requirements, which is why the building is designed to provide flexible library and event spaces, seminar rooms, office and workshop areas, as well as experimental spaces for immersive audio and video presentations, including a sound and video studio.

The event spaces are distributed throughout the entire building and can accommodate audience groups ranging from 20 to 400 people. For this purpose, AV technology and scenic lighting systems have been planned. The seminar rooms will be fully equipped with media technology, offering hybrid usage options as well as the ability to conduct video conferences. The experimental spaces for immersive audio and video presentations will be equipped with state-of-the-art 360° projection and sound systems.

In addition to planning the AV technology, we also provide comprehensive advice on building physics and planning in the areas of building and room acoustics.
