A new concert hall in memory of Yehudi Menuhin built in the grounds of the school which he founded in Stoke D’Abernon, Surrey. The building provides a foyer, bar, green rooms and an auditorium seating 330 people.
The building is structured in steel, concrete and timber. A critical feature affecting the structural design is the M25 which is close by. To control noise levels a deep and heavy diaphragm roof is provided over the auditorium. The diaphragm has an outer layer of precast concrete panels and an inner layer of timber panelling separated by an air space. This is supported by a series of tied steel portals connected to form a space frame over the concert hall.
