A 316-seat auditorium with the acoustic qualities of international concert halls was designed for the pupils of this renowned school for young musicians, for them to experience performing to larger audiences but in an intimate familiar environment. The building is mechanically ventilated using the rake of the stalls as a fresh air plenum, whose thermal mass moderates temperatures in warmer weather.
