In 2018, 0,5 Studio’s founders Pavel Nový and Vít Svoboda began work on a new education centre for the Czech Philharmonic in Prague after winning an initial design bid. Their goal was to create a unique space that would be both functional and inspiring. The result is a highly adaptable space that can accommodate educational programmes as well as musical performances. The design reflects the architecture of the Rudolfinum, a grand neoclassical building in which the centre is housed.

By deliberately diversifying the designs throughout the centre, Novy and Svoboda’s hope is to elicit different forms of engagement from visitors as they move from room to room: from concentrating on music and teaching, to simply relaxing. Located on the ground floor of the historic Rudolfinum, a once awkward area used previously as office and box office space has been transformed. The new centre will not only be used by the Czech Philharmonic but is also available to external cultural and educational organisations.
