Malmö Live

Malmö Live is a cultural area in central Malmö. The area is home to Malmö Live concert hall, hotel and congress, and residential and office buildings.


In this project, Efterklang has based the work on Malmö Live’s requirement of an active acoustic strategy. This strategy is based on the fact that sound is being delivered for the purpose of interacting with the environment in a harmonious manner.


For Malmö Live, this means that the intended effect can be integrated at an early stage of planning, increasing the likelihood of a successful final result. Based on this acoustic design strategy, decisions can then be taken regarding which traditional acoustic measures need to be taken to reinforce the characteristic impression that Malmö Live is seeking for the building and surrounding site.
