Competition winning new build music venue and performance space within the grounds of the College. The new auditorium has been constructed tight to the medieval city walls, which required significant repairs. The walls, which are a Scheduled Ancient Monument, form the envelope of the building on three sides. The new structure had to respond to the acoustic requirements but also very tight height restrictions.
