RIBA Award winner, 19th of May 2011

Artfully modelled fluid spaces, crafted and detailed with care and quality. From public performance to intimate practice spaces, each is related but yet perfect to its own function.

The view upon entering the foyer takes in the two storey fall across the site as the staircase leads you down to the open glazed recital room and the Arcadian scene beyond. The concert hall is a beautiful daylit barn of a space, warm and majestic with towering Douglas fir boarded ceilings, cranked timber and steel trusses sat on solid brick walls and concrete columns. The acoustics derive from the geometry rather than by addition. The teaching block is a complete change in scale, the rooms are functioning cells which benefit from natural daylight.
