St Swithun’s School – Performing Arts Centre
The Performing Arts Centre is an 850 seat Auditorium which was designed for not only musical performance but also theatre and speech. We worked closely together with Arup Acoustics to resolve these contrasting acoustic requirements and optimise the auditorium for all uses thus giving the school maximum flexibility in the use of this significant space. Given the finite budget any school has to commit to any project, this was completed on time and budget employing a number of innovative and simple solutions to the acoustic design. The building also included studio theatres, stores, changing facilities and foyer.
