Popstage Mezz

CDA

In 2002 the Poppodium Mezz Concerts & Dance opened its doors to the public. The music tempel created by Erick van Egeraat Associated Architects in Breda was de successor of poptempel Para.

The new music centre has the shape of a shell which leans against the former officer’s mess of the barracks complex on the “Chassé” area. In order to limit the noise pollution the building was added a double peel of 1m with on top multiplex barges filled with a special sand. This isolation must lower the noise to a whisper level. The spacious construction of steel rafters, a work from Pieters Bouwtechniek, got a copper outside lining. The inside construction is filled with stone wool with stucco gauze. The outside copper wall has no windows, a pop centre does not need direct daylight. The slit openings are used to bring and evacuate the light. After the building poppodium was finished it offered a room, including balcony, for 650 people. The Music Coffee shop will be able to host up to 150 visitors. 4 isolated repetition spaces have been created to welcome drums, guitars and bass amplifiers, two cloakrooms with showers as well as office and meeting spaces. They have also foreseen a space for the loading and unloading of the instruments for the bands and a space in the basement for bicycles. M&M Bouw Brabant en Smulders Duscon are responsible for this construction.
