Capita Architecture finishes home for BBC's Welsh orchestra

Capita Architecture has completed the new home of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in Cardiff.

Hoddinott Hall is named after late Welsh composer Alan Hoddinott, who died in March, and is located next to Capita’s Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay.

The building provides a new ‘multi-purpose’ home for Wales’ symphony orchestra, and includes office space, rehearsal facilities, a 350-capacity performance hall, and a state-of-the-art recording studio.

Rob Firth, head of Capita Architecture, said: ‘We’ve designed the new building and auditorium to complement and enhance the existing building and performance spaces at the original Wales Millennium Centre, while creating a bespoke venue specifically for the orchestra and chorus.

‘We’ve also taken great care to ensure that precise details, such as the hall’s acoustics, are of an international standard.’
