Changes in the engineering technologies of concert halls and the choice of finishing materials are discussed in this article. The latest developments and technologies help to enhance the acoustic properties and create a creative, contemporary interior. The acoustics of the hall need to be regulated by the degree of diffuse reflection. Finishing materials are one of the main aspects of the formation of the interior space of a concert hall. In order to ensure optimal sound conditions, special attention should be paid to the decoration of the ceiling space and sidewalls of the room. Various types of mid-to-high frequency, low frequency and wide frequency absorbers are used for this purpose.

This paper deals with the physical, mechanical and aesthetic characteristics of sound-absorbing materials and trademark designs that are presented in the Ukrainian market.

The quality of sound and light equipment and its correct placement will ensure the maximum service life of the concert hall. Depending on the three-dimensional planning solution, as well as the technical and economic characteristics of the room, you can choose the scheme of air distribution: "bottom-up", "top-down" or multi-zone scheme. It is determined that it is advisable to use infrared heaters to heat the auditoriums.

When choosing the furniture of concert halls, it is necessary to take into account the general style of the building and the color scheme of the selected finishing materials. For concert halls, it is advisable to select seats made using modern technologies: triplexing, fire barrier, options, mobility systems, sound absorption and more. The main artistic and aesthetic means of shaping the environment of the concert halls are soft and hard decorations, as well as small stuff.

The use of innovative technologies and the use of modern finishing materials increases the attendance rate of these objects and provides comfort to the viewers.
