Located near the northern boundary of Los Caobos Park in the cultural heart of Caracas, the complex will empower the city’s disadvantaged youth through musical training. ADJKM Arquitectos divided the complex into two volumes: the grounded music conservatory and an above ground volume comprising three concert halls. The horizontal gap between the two sections serves as a public gathering space and overlooks Los Caobos Park.

The music conservatory is located below ground and will offer more quiet and intimate spaces for students to study and practice. In contrast, the three airy concert halls are suspended above ground. Each concert hall offers different seating capacities, with the largest accommodating 1,900 audience seats and the smallest experimental hall accommodating 500 visitors.
