Level Five Open for Business!

By Kath Hartley |

Leeds College of Music continues its investment in student experience with a newly refurbished and repurposed facility on Level 5 of our Quarry Hill campus.

   

 

 

Following the relocation of the conservatoire’s music Library and extensive Jazz archive from the fifth floor to the recently opened Skyline Library, the vacated area has been reconfigured to provide additional and bespoke learning spaces.

The £0.5m development has allowed the space to be repurposed and increase a number of key facilities for Leeds College of Music students including; additional practice areas, specialist drum rooms, a large classical rehearsal room and a newly extended Mac lab.

The refurbishment also sees the development of ‘The Music Business Hub’ a dedicated teaching space for our Music Business pathway students, a ‘Postgraduate Study Zone’, as well as a large, relaxation space and break-out area for all students complete with large beanbags and corkboards for notices.

The development was designed by multi-award-winning architects Halliday Clark, who also created the study pods for quiet study and meetings, booths and group working desks.

 

   

Following the relocation of the conservatoire’s Audio Visual Team to the Fifth Floor, students will also now be able to benefit from the new ‘Creative Production Room’ with access to the latest Adobe Creative Suite programmes.

The repurposed area is now open to all staff and students.
