Violin Makers Workshop, Oxford
High quality new office, music room and workshops of 2,500 sqft floor area are connected to an existing victorian shop. This building forms the first phase of a mixed use courtyard development replacing a bakery building on an awkward triangular site situated in a conservation area.
The design concept is tailored to allow complex construction phasing in order to enable demolition of the existing workshop premises following the completion of the new building.
The mass of the new building is broken up into a varied plan and roof geometry to allow it to sit comfortably along side much smaller residential properties within a village context.
This also creates a performance music room with no parallel surfaces providing great acoustics for detailed analysis of instrumental sound across the full tone spectrum.
