    As of May, 2016 the Abbey of Pannonhalma was enriched with a concert hall suited to house conferences, music programmes, minor theatre and movie performances, as well as school celebrations thanks to the architectural and acoustic features of this gap-filling development taking place within the framework of St Martin’s Year. The need for a multifunctional hall with a larger capacity had been phrased a long time ago: following the inauguration of the new basketball hall of the Benedictine secondary grammar school in 2014 the former gym hall proved a convenient scene. It is a natural follow-up of the main entrance to the complex of the abbey but also has its own well-separated entrance. Designing of the hall had to focus on a priority, namely the facilitation of high-standards acoustics. The substantial height of the interior could be realized by deepening the former gym hall. The volume of the hall as well as its shape and proportions predominantly define the optimal values of post-vibrations. The evenly distribution of sound energy is facilitated by the whispering gallery of lanes of beechwood, the optimization of the diffusor and the sound-absorbing surfaces, the broken design of the lateral walls bordering space with built-in membrane surfaces, the layered structuring of the stage and the individually designed 268 seats of the stalls. Another 60 seats are found around the stage in the upper circle and by temporarily transforming the stage into a central space the hall is extended so as to house even school celebrations with as many as 400 participants.
