The project involves the reconfiguration of the existing cafe to improve the physical layout, provide additional working areas for students and create a fresh new appearance.


Former plasterboard ceilings were removed to reveal the existing ribbed concrete slab and coloured acoustic panels inserted within the bays.


New high level acoustic panels were fixed to the rear wall over existing facing brickwork to assist in controlling sound. New lighting, bespoke furniture and a new servery complete the refurbishment.

...a complicated large-scale renovation of the theatre, bars and foyer spaces as well as the creation of a new studio space below the main stage.
