Koskisen materials were used in building the world class concert hall in Katowice, Poland.
BirchUp panels have been used so that the veneer edges are visible, solid birch lamellas have also been placed between the plywood strips. The structure provides for a visually appealing and dense surface which also has superb acoustic properties.

The customer’s choice for the concert hall’s material was largely based on the excellent acoustic properties and beautiful appearance of Finnish birch plywood.
The concert hall to be completed in Katowice will be world class, with perfectly designed acoustics. The plywood in BirchUp panels is placed so that the edge is visible, and solid birch lamellas can be placed in between the plywood strips. The structure provides for a visually appealing and dense surface, which also has superb acoustic properties.
Each balcony of the main auditorium is unique. Manufacturing the balcony elements required care and precision from Koskisen.
“We made extensive use of suppliers in the manufacture of the elements and managing the supplier network was key to the successful outcome,” says Project Manager and Quality and Purchase Manager Anna-Maaret Roppola from Koskisen.
As a whole, the Katowice Concert Hall project is an ideal showcase for Finnish expertise in wood processing and professional project management. Koskisen now has the required capacity and skills to successfully deal with similar projects in the future.
