The studios are expressed in the timber enclosure above the changing rooms, and timber sliding external screens protect the glazing as well as provide privacy to the studios.
The building is set away from the rest of the school in order for daylight to enter the existing hall.
The space between is treated as a covered ‘external’ gallery and allows for cross ventilation of the studios. This transitional space is clad with acoustic louvres at both ends.
