Eric Parry gains Wells consent

Eric Parry gains Wells consent
Eric Parry architects have been granted planning consent from Mendip District Council for this £4.5m music facility at Wells Cathedral School.

Cedars Hall will provide flexible space for rehearsal, performing and recording, including a recital hall that can accommodate up to 340 people.

Set within the landscaped grounds of Cedars House a palette of weathered steel, timber panels and full height glazing was used to respond to this rich heritage and appear as a “lantern” on the landscape.

Internally wall panels can be adjusted to accommodate differing acoustic properties and an exposed timber roof structure has been designed to further enhance acoustic performance.

This work augments a new sports pavilion, also by Eric Parry, within the school grounds.
