We have been appointed to design a new performing arts centre for this boarding school, which sits in a prominent position above the town of Monmouth in south Wales. Their current music teaching facilities are no longer fit for purpose, but this new centre will provide a centrally located combined facility for music, drama and dance, including a recital hall.
The site sits next to the main listed stone school and the new building replaces an old gymnasium, which was adjacent (and linked) to the existing theatre and drama teaching spaces. Relocating music into this new home will allow the school to develop that vacant building for other uses. The theatre will also be upgraded in the next phase of works.
Replacing an existing gymnasium to create a bespoke performing arts centre.
