The theatre is made up of music recording studios, teaching spaces and a 264-seat performance space. The building is conceived as an elevated translucent box sitting on a plinth of black brickwork, clad in coloured, translucent glazing to create a vibrant facade.
The teaching block provides 1930m2 of flexible teaching space and echoes the style and form of the existing campus structures, ensuring a coherent campus identity. The use of modern materials and colours, such as the multi-tone, dark grey rainscreen cladding on black brickwork and the brightly coloured ‘hoops’ that frame the window openings, refresh the look of the campus.
Both buildings achieved the BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating.
