Initial plans of a private “dacha” for conductor Valery Gergiev quickly transformed into artistic and educational ambitions: creating a guest house to welcome talented young musicians in residence, and invite world-class performers visiting St. Petersburg to meet and exchange. A hall which could accommodate rehearsals and workshops as well as performances was a natural extension to fulfill these ambitions. Xavier Fabre—who had previously worked with Gergiev and NA on Mariinsky Concert Hall—was appointed as principal architect for the project.
