The new music technology centre at Westonbirt School was developed as a response to its sensitive location within the walled garden that originally housed the glasshouses of this large Victorian estate. The building has been designed to reflect the glasshouses that occupied the site, and kept low to minimise its impact on the nearby formal Italian Garden.
One room, connected to a fully-equipped recording studio, provides a rehearsal and performance space, and the second provides a classroom equipped with the latest computers and keyboards for electronic music composition.
Funds for the facility were donated by parents and alumni, whose names have been engraved on paving slabs bordering the building. Take care who you step on!
