• Sala Suggia

    Regarded as the heart of the Casa da Musica, Sala Suggia – so named as an homage to Guillermina Suggia, Porto’s native cellist and a world exponent for this instrument during the first half of the twentieth century - serves as anchor to the whole building, allowing the main routes to develop around it.

  • Sala 2

    It is the second largest concert hall of Casa da Música. Designed as a multipurpose space, it is ideal for any type of event. Its phenomenal acoustics is based on the coating of walls and ceilings, in perforated plywood, which was not painted conventionally with spray or brush but dipped in red paint, which gives it a very natural tone with slight nuances.

  • Cibermúsica

    Originally designed to harbor the Educational Service, more specifically the Digitopia and all of its technological devices, Cibermusic was instead adapted to new and varied functions.

  • Renaissance Room

    The Renaissance Room is first and foremost a waypoint that liaises two essential spaces in Casa da Música: Cybermusic and theWest Foyer West. It was designed and built to be a bar of Casa da Música, which would operate whenever required by the number and circulation of public, particularly in events with simultaneous concerts. 

  • Purple Room

    Created alongside the Orange Room, the Purple Room meets similarly the intent to support the programming of the Educational Service, in particular the A Música Toma Conta de Mim (The Music Takes Care of Me) project, that welcomes 3 to 10 year old children and involves discovery sessions and musical creation while the adults responsible for them enjoy a concert.

  • Orange Room

    Designed as a multipurpose space, the Orange Room is, however, mainly used by the Educational Service. It was idealized as a "clean room" for educational events, whilst the Purple Room, right next door, was conceived as a "dirty room", quickly washable if required by the activities taking place there. It is one of the few spaces of Casa da Música accessible to the public where there is no direct effect of natural light.

  • VIP Room

    As the name implies, the VIP lounge was created to be a sort of calling card of Casa da Música, a distinguished and particularly formal space within the institution. However, it has been used mainly for small events such as press conferences, receptions, cocktails or even record releases.

  • VIP Terrace

    Located above Sala 2, the VIP Terrace was designed as a technical area to which visitors would not have access. During the construction however, Rem Koolhaas decided to include this space in the public access spaces, as an indoor square. For this reason, the wall on the left side was not erected to the top and on the right side there is no wall, only glass guards. 

  • Lobby

    Passing the main entrance one is lead into the first functional space of the building, which includes the Ticket Office, the Reception, the Shop and the Cloakroom, exactly underneath the heart of Casa da Música: Sala Suggia. From the ticket booth, the visitor can watch music rehearsals via the perforated aluminum on the wall opposite the balcony, which unravels one of the most symbolic objectives of the building: integrating the visitor in the musical process that precedes the public presentation. In six small rooms, in full view of passers-by, soloists and small ensembles rehearse.

  • East Foyer

    At the top of the stairs lies the East Foyer. With a huge ceiling height (almost 56 feet high), it is a fundamental space for conveying natural light into Sala Suggia which receives the whole of the sunlight through a large window with wavy glass panes that Rem Koolhaas had already used in other projects but never in such an ambitious scale.
