This L-shaped building has been designed using mathematics, precisely Fibonacci-sequence. Fibonacci number has been selected as the representation of contemporary music knowledge and has an important influence on Bela Bartok, Erik Satie, to cite a few.

The building, also, is based on a dual relation as binary music; It is made out of stone and wood and reflects hard and soft, cold and warm, age of myriads and centuries, enduring and intimate, inside and outside, object and space, extrovert and introvert, active and passive.

This duality engenders an interaction of the building and its program — music — as well as the building and its immediate environment.
