Abbey School Einsiedeln Monastery

Ceiling and track spotlights for music house in Swiss grammar school

Music has a long tradition at Einsiedeln Abbey and its charter school. The new music house connects the main baroque building with the newer parts of the school and offers rooms for musical lessons in addition to 
a spacious foyer for breaks. The Basel architecture office of Diener & Diener Architects, who designed, among other things, an extension to the Swiss Embassy in Berlin, were enlisted to construct the new building with classrooms and rehearsal spaces.
