Working within the existing 1950’s concrete-frame structure, a new ceiling of arched vaults were installed to give character and a sense of place, but also to improve acoustic qualities. In the main area these vaults are shallow and expansive, whereas in the niches they are made deeper, to create enveloping spaces which can double as informal study areas outside lunch times.
