Sherborne School, Dorset

The project is a new music building for Sherborne School in Dorset. The primary aim for the building has been to make use of natural ventilation where feasible, whilst minimising break out noise and maintaining the acoustic integrity of the building elements. For example, the design of the natural ventilation openings to the practice rooms incorporate an acoustically attenuated duct within the wall build up of the external façade. The distribution strategy for services has also been developed to minimise penetrations through key walls and floors. Completed July 2010
