As a new landmark on Tyneside The Sage Gateshead forms the heart of an exciting project to regenerate the area's river frontage. The building supplies a "pioneering international centre for music and musical discovery" and includes two auditoria, a rehearsal space, a 25-room Music Education Centre and the covered Concourse. This concourse links the various spaces and is with its magnificent panoramic views the public focus of the building. It is a major new internal public space, open fourteen hours a day, with cafes, bars and ticket office. The stainless steel roof encloses the entire complex, which is 'shrink-wrapped' around the buildings beneath. The Sage Gateshead addresses the nature of public space and the concept of the democratic, accessible ‘urban living room’. As Gateshead Council stated all these diverse functions are combined in one space, encouraging interaction between performers, students and the public, thus breaking down cultural and creative barriers.
