Grid chosen to design new home for music academy

Grid's World Heart Beat Music Academy in Nine Elms

Architect to create ‘box-in-a-box’ in Nine Elms resi block

Grid Architects has been appointed to design a music academy at Nine Elms.

It will include a 110-seat performance space, teaching and practice rooms, radio and recording studios, a vinyl printing facility and offices.

The academy will be housed in a ground-floor double-height space in a block of flats in the second phase of Ecoworld Ballymore’s Embassy Gardens development. Near the new US embassy, this was designed by Hal Architects and Arup and will feature a much-publicised transparent swimming pool suspended between two of the blocks.
