Westminster School Music Building Education Westminster , Central London Westminster School £3,000,000
The project converted a dilapidated Army facility into a music department for a public school in the centre of Westminster, London. Generally the building required substantial renovation including new mechanical and electrical installations, a new roof and re-levelled floors and ceilings. The challenges of a landlocked site with limited space were overcome when the basement was extended to provide additional space. The ground and upper floors were converted into performance areas and lecture rooms. The acoustic performance of the building was critical and sound insulation; reverberation measures and sound attenuation were all installed. In addition two apartments were created at the 2nd floor level.
