The new music school at King’s School, Bruton, sits on the site of a former open-air swimming pool, amongst a collection of listed buildings dating from the 16th century. Facilities include a recital hall, peripatetic rooms, practice rooms, music classrooms and a recording studio.
A carefully crafted 'box of tricks', the design has been driven by the constrained but inspiring site and an ambitious client brief. Situated within a rich landscape of historic structures, the setting demanded an architecturally sympathetic response, whilst delivering the complex technical and acoustic requirements of a music school.
