Hoskins and Williams among finalists for £32m German venue

Two British practices have made the shortlist to design a €32 million (£26million) concert hall in Bochum, Germany

London-based Keith Williams Architects was named among the 10 finalist, heading up a team which includes engineers Buro Happold.

Glasgow-based Gareth Hoskins Architects also made the cut, as did six German practices, a Dutch firm and a Spanish outfit.

The new Bochum Musikzentrum will be on a 4,700m² site in the centre of the town, part of a wider masterplan aimed at regenerating part of the city.

The project, run by the City of Bochum and supported by the Bochum Symphony Foundation, will create a new home for the Bochum Symphony Orchestra.

Designs will centre on a 1,000-seat concert hall as well as a 250-seat multipurpose hall and new facilities for the local music school.

The vacant 19th Century Marien-Church is to be preserved on the site, and will form an integral part of the overall scheme. The teams have until 4 May to complete their proposals
