Capita Architecture has started work on an extension to its Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff.

The £16.5 million addition to the award-winning centre will become the new home of the BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales, and will provide a permanent 4,500m2 350-seat rehearsal and performance venue.

The extension will be named BBC Hoddinott Hall after Wales’ most prominent living composer, Alun Hoddinott. The centre is due to open its doors before the end of next year, and will complete the original concept for the Wales Millennium Centre, which, intriguingly, the practice is also recreating in China Capita to recreate its Wales Millennium Centre – in China.

Rob Firman, director 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 WMC, while creating a bespoke venue specifically for the orchestra and chorus.’
