£5.5m job will revive listed Drapers’ Hall after 20 years

The Prince’s Foundation’s in-house architects have won planning consent for the £5.5m restoration of Coventry’s grade II*-listed Drapers’ Hall.

The building, in the Cathedral Quarter, has lain empty for 20 years. It will now be converted into a music school and performance centre in time for the start of Coventry’s year as City of Culture in 2021.

A rear extension has been designed in the Regency style of the existing building to provide additional space for the main occupier, Coventry Music Service.
