The Higher School of Music of the Basque Country, Musikene housed in the district of Benta Berri.
It is a centre specially designed for the higher teaching of music and which, in addition to classrooms, offices and the Mediatheque, will house an auditorium.
The team of GAZ architects defines the building as a volume which expands to occupy the entire site. It is a black lacquered volume in a nod to the colour of a grand piano, with carved openings allowing light to flow into its spaces.
From the top of the building, golden colour rises upwards in contrast to the black, thereby lending the construction its personality.
