The design and construction team collaborated with Nottingham Trent University (NTU) to transform a former synagogue (and before that a Wesleyan Chapel) into a new graduation hall and year-round performance venue, breathing new life into a grade II listed building that was damaged during World War II. The project involved replacing an existing extension with a predominantly glass structure that provides level access throughout. It includes a green wall. The building is BREEAM ‘Excellent’. The new extension (the Music School) includes offices, dance studios, music rooms, a bar and restaurant.
