The German Wind Academy in Bad Lausick

The construction of the German Wind Academy in the Bad Lausick spa gardens, which cost € 3.1 million, was financed with around € 1.5 million from the state of Saxony (Saxon State Ministry for Science and Arts) in addition to € 1.6 million from the District of Leipzig. Planning for this building was carried out by Architekturbüro Höer, which is also located in Bad Lausick.

This meant that a brand-new building complex for musical and cultural use, which combines professional orchestra work and regional amateur performances in a very modern manner, was created in the traditional spa town of Bad Lausick.

The new building provides the long-awaited rehearsal and academy rooms to match the standards required by the German Wind Academy's musical education centre and the artistic importance of the Saxony Philharmonic Wind Orchestra.

The utilisation concept

The utilisation concept of the building is intended to provide mutual use of the premises for a wide range of cultural institutions across the district of Leipzig.
The main user of the building is the Saxony Philharmonic Wind Orchestra / Deutsche Bläserakademie GmbH, both of whom are promoted by the Leipzig cultural region. They use the central hall on the ground floor as a rehearsal hall and the adjacent archive, technology and storage rooms and two seminar rooms for educational purposes. The upper floor contains the preparation rooms for the musicians and the company's general administration area.

A further user of the building is the "Eigenbetrieb Kultur- und Weiterbildung Muldental"  together with the "Theodor Uhlig" Muldental music school and the Muldental adult education centre. These are housed in five separate rooms on the ground floor.
A new home was also provided for the Bad Lausick town band.
