Project Description


The Pforzheim City Theater is a theater in Baden-Wuttemberg, Germany. It is the home of the City of Pforzheim’s ballet, theatre, and opera companies as well as the Badische Philharmonie Pforzheim orchestra. 


The WSDG Design Team was tasked with an acoustic redesign of the theater’s orchestra pit and orchestra rehearsal room as well as room acoustics of the main theater. 


A room acoustics package was developed for both the theater and orchestra rehearsal rooms that took into account their high level of sound exposure. New absorptive materials were utilized in the wall and ceiling surfaces of both to create a more favorable reverberation time for speech and the musicians.
