The client wanted a music room for teaching purposes together with toiket facilities. The space had to be adaptable for use as a study and utility area on occasions.
A simple 'lean to' design was adopted with a zinc roof, and an exposed roof internally, lit from mabove by two plateau rooflights and a sunpipe with ventilator.
Finishes were kept simple with hard, non reflective surfaces to give good acoustics, tempered with furnishings / curtains to give some sound absorbancy.
The space can be separated by an oak siliding / folding screen, and underfloor heating provides a comfortable ambience for teaching.
