There’ll be a welcome in the hillsides ; well the stair cores at least, at RHWL Arts Team’s new £89m Guildhall School of Music & Drama, which opened the end of last year in the City of London. Butting up to the Barbican, Welsh Slate supplied stone to the new arts venue Milton Court, which includes a 600-seat concert hall and 223-seat theatre. Over 500m2 of its Penrhyn Heather Red slate was supplied to the public areas. The sleek stone was chosen to complement the engineering brick floors that run throughout the Barbican and to reduce the building’s carbon footprint.
