Bisset Adams was commissioned to create a lower ground floor extension to the auditorium in the City of London Girls’ School, located in the Grade II listed environment of the Barbican in Central London. The new extension provides exciting flexible space for performance, receptions, events and displays, and is already transforming school productions. As a lower ground floor space, it is lit by a dramatic single long rooflight, and the design includes sedum roof panels. This project involved working closely with both the school and City of London corporation planners and conservation officers, to achieve planning consent and deliver the new extension.
