Tim Ronalds Architects reveals Oxford concert hall
£9m project to mark 150th anniversary of St Edward’s School
London-based Tim Ronalds Architects has proposed the initial designs for a new thousand-seat concert hall in the city of Oxford.
The new development will be supported by the St Edward’s Foundation, launched to mark the 150th anniversary of St Edward’s School in Oxford.
Estimated to cost £9 million, the new facility is set to open in 2015 with a new music school for pupils built on land owned by the school in North Oxford, followed by the concert hall planned for completion in 2018. T
Warden Stephen Jones said: “The absence of a concert hall has been a longstanding problem for Oxford. The creation of this facility alongside our North Wall arts centre will establish a dynamic new performing arts quarter in North Oxford, with the new hall capable of hosting the world’s greatest orchestras as well as local young musicians, bands and ensembles.
“The two venues will open up countless opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to perform and engage with theatre, music and art.”
