Royal College of Music development gets green light

16th October 2015

The £25 million project will create new performance spaces, recording facilities and practice rooms, and will be funded through a mixture of private and public investment (coordinated through the conservatoire’s ‘More Music’ campaign). Architect John Simpson’s design focuses on the courtyard at the heart of the conservatoire, which will contain two new multi-functional performance spaces with integrated recording and broadcasting facilities, new practice rooms and a new home for the RCM Museum of Music. The development will also create new areas for audiences and visitors, including a café, restaurant and open air spaces, and will improve the institution’s step-free access. RCM director Professor Colin Lawson said: “Our vision is to support the great musicians of the future by providing the very best learning environment whilst also opening up the conservatoire to the general public so that they can connect with our high-quality music-making as never before.”
