Walters and Cohen has gained planning consent for its design for a recital hall commissioned by music academy the Yehudi Menuhin School. The two-storey building, in Stoke d'Abernon, Surrey, is integrated into the landscape and encloses a grassed amphitheatre. The practice won a competition for the building in March 2000, and a planning application was submitted last December. The building is to be sited on Metropolitan Green. The practice has also won a competition to design a new National Photography Centre for Wales, beating Jestico + Whiles, Richard Murphy, Austin-Smith: Lord, Niall Phillips and Terry Pawson.Work is due to start next year.
