Dowrick Suite

PHP was appointed as the Lead Consultant to create a state-of-the-art auditorium for Trevelyan College by refurbishing two existing halls. As we were working within a confined site area, within an operational college environment, we had to liaise closely with college staff and University Estates Representatives to ensure minimal disruption.

Through further close cooperation with the college and student representatives, we determined the exact requirements of their bespoke lecture seating and the acoustic qualities of the space.

Due to the unusual form of the room, the project required us to design specialist acoustic ceiling panels. We further created a unique finish by using tailored fabrics, and coordinating the integration of a variety of specialist services into the build, including AV and IT controls.
