One of the most impressive performing arts centres to be built at a school in the UK features a bespoke roof glazing solution from WICONA.
Designed by Associated Architects and built by Miller Construction, the Performing Arts Centre at Yarm School in the North East was a major component of the redevelopment of the co-educational private school. The new facilities include a double-height entrance foyer with stunning views over the River Tees, a large fan-shaped centre for dance and drama, and a fully-flexible auditorium capable of accommodating up to 800 people. Retractable seating allows this space to be used for a variety of functions, from examinations to concert performances.
The roof to the auditorium has a combination of square and shaped glass panels constructed using WICTEC 50 aluminium roof-glazing system, creating a smooth radius of roof light.
