Leeds College of Music's new venue is taking shape on site. Our design proposal consists of a rooftop extension and refurbishment at third floor level in order to extend the existing foyer facilities for ‘The Venue’ at Leeds College of Music.
The rooftop extension creates a large usable and flexible space which serves the auditorium adjacent or can act independently. The facade of the extension has been developed through the theme of celebrating activity. The combination of louvres and openable glazing creates an ‘active front’ which relates visually to the adjacent St Peters Square. The scheme incorporates a new lounge bar and kitchen facilities with an active and expressive extension.
