John McAslan & Partners

  • Comment

John McAslan & Partners has won planning and listed building consent for this remodelling and extension of the Royal Academy of Music in Marylebone, London. The scheme will incorporate internal interventions, such as improving access, in the 1820s Grade I-listed John Nash-designed building on York Gate (to the left of the picture), which will become a 'living' museum, practice and teaching facility and archive centre. The ram, on the right, was designed by Sir Ernest George & Yeates in 1910 and called a 'stately tripartite composition with Baroque stone trimmings' by Pevsner. McAslan will create a new barrel-vaulted rehearsal hall in the courtyard between the two buildings, which will serve to connect them by a top-lit lower- ground route. The 3000m2 scheme has heritage lottery support and is due for completion in phases by 2001.
