Truro College Kenwyn Building – Acoustic Design

Here’s one of our recently completed projects looking rather splendid, if we do say so ourselves.

The gloomy old refectory in the Kenwyn Building at Truro College, Cornwall, has been refurbished, and what was formerly a pretty dingy courtyard alongside it has been transformed into this bright and airy study space. Windows from teaching spaces overlook the study space at both levels, and so the acoustic design had to focus on achieving a reasonable level of separation between the formal and informal space, as well as controlling the buildup of reverberant sound within the double height study area itself.

We worked with our friends at Interserve Construction on this one, and are continuing our relationship as we work together on the Target Basic Needs schools across Cornwall – including my old Primary School!
