Dedicated flexible performance and rehearsal hall with practice and teaching rooms on the University of Kent campus

The building is adjacent to the Gulbenkian Theatre and Cinema, creating an Arts complex on the university campus.

The exterior of the building is clad with bespoke blocks faced with pebble and flint due to demands of Canterbury's planners. The steel structure is hidden behind finishes with the services and acoustic performance regulators concealed within the voids in the construction.

Internally a long entrance foyer leads to a theatre that is placed on an axis with the Gulbenkian foyer, which it links to. The theatre is clad in Douglas fir and has large side windows as well as a rooflight.
