Bristol Grammar School, Performing Arts Centre
Bristol Grammar School (BGS) appointed AWW to develop a new Performing Arts Centre (PAC) on their existing site at Elton Road, Bristol. The design includes the construction of a new build theatre auditorium, dance studio and associated facilities linked into the refurbished Elton Road Block.
The theatre enables different seating configurations, a dance studio, live music venue and a variety of music and band rooms. The foyer also provides an impressive venue for art exhibitions. These spaces will be available to the wider community, including schools and local arts groups as well as visiting national companies and organisations outside school hours.
“Working closely with BGS and using our experience of developing similar auditorium space, AWW has created a design solution that provides the amenities and environment that the students require and that fits comfortably into the existing context.”
While the learning, teaching and performances at the school are already excellent, I believe the inspirational surroundings of the new facility will help develop even more creativity. Rod MacKinnon - Client
