Del Velo Heintzmen Piano Musem and Music Conservatory

Named the Del Velo, meaning “of the veil” in italian, the heinztman piano museum and conservatory is designed to be a inviting and welcoming space that can both exhibit the various aspects of a heinztman piano and allow for the education and practice of the musical arts.

The curvilinear mass of the building in which the majority of the open space programming inhabits is anchored through the two rectilinear axes in the rear of the building. Private, more enclosed programming is anchored to the rectilinear axis while the curved “belly” provides for more open, congregating programming. The curved form allows large amounts of diffused soft lighting to enter deep into the building as well as creates a unique, boundless etherial atmosphere within. The “veil” around the building conceals the skeleton of the building and contributes to the diffusion of natural lighting within the building. The frosted veil also creates a sense of mystery when viewed from the exterior and the soft curves allow for a soft and comfortable appearance.
