Archiecture 2B join Kaiser Chiefs to design studio for future music talent

Leeds-based Architecture 2B is giving its time for free to overhaul a rundown studio which helped launch the careers of bands such as The Mission, Sisters of Mercy and the Pigeon Detectives.

The firm is working alongside local rockers The Kaiser Chiefs on a design brief to revamp and the expand Leeds' Old Chapel Rehearsal Studios - a rundown, brick built building on the edge of the Holbeck Urban Village where the band first started rehearsing.

The project, which still needs to find significant funds to get off the ground, hopes to provide up to date facilities for bands of all levels of ability and experience with 'the emphasis on ensuring the next generation have a base in which to learn and develop whilst rubbing shoulders with the professional bands and musicians'.
