Challenge
The long-span structure must prevent floor vibrations caused by the rhythmic activities inherent in dance practices.
Solution
Several structural framing elements prevent floor vibrations. For instance, 15-metre-long architecturally exposed deflection-controlled beams span across the studios and provide enough mass to the structure to prevent floor vibrations. Exposed circular columns also contribute mass, and large mechanical beam openings allow for conditioning of the space.
