Elbphilharmonie to shut for repairs after water damagemain
Hamburg’s 800 million-Euro concert hall has called back the builders for emergency repairs. Part of the building will be shut while the work is carried out.
The foyer of the small hall has suffered extensive water damage, apparently a leak from the heating system.
It is reported that the hall’s management covered up the damage with blow-dryers until the end of the season but are now having to face structural issues. At least one wall will need to be demolished and rebuilt. They will start relaying the floor of the foyer next week.
