Elbphilharmonie – The Façades from Inside

After the three photos of the striking glass courtain façade of “ELFI”, this time photos of the same facade panels seen from the inside.

When you enter the building on the ground floor, a very long escalator takes you directly to the floor between the existing and renovated 1960s brick substructure and the new glass box of the Philharmonie above.

The entrance to the concert hall is located here. The façade recedes from the facades of the top and underlying floors, creating an outdoor gallery around the entire floor. From here you can view Hamburg from all sides.

From this entrance, wide stairs lead to the higher foyers and entrances to the three halls.
From the foyers you can look outside through the panels from my previous series of photos.

We recognize the reflective chrome-like dots and grey circular screen printing as well as the spherically curved elements. But you never have the impression that you are on the other side of those curious blue elements from my previous post.
