The project began in 1967. The building is 80 metres high and has a 522-seat concert hall with a large concert organ (one of the biggest instruments in Europe), this concert hall was build as recording studio, and this is the Studio 1. Also there are other studios, like the Studio 2 with 250 seats and the Studio 5 with 150 seats. Also the BSO record small chamber formations in the Studio 4.
