This award-winning project was a new music building for Sherborne School in Dorset.

The primary aim for the building was 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 practise rooms incorporate an acoustically attenuated duct within the wall build up of the external fa├žade. The distribution strategy for services was also developed to minimise penetrations through key walls and floors.
