UK-based practice Tim Ronalds Architects has submitted designs for the proposed music building for the University of Kent, Canterbury campus, in the UK.

The 1,900m² flexible music facility will be built in pre-cast concrete and flint, and feature a top-lit foyer to accommodate performance and office spaces.

The £4.5m ($6.8m) building has a link to the existing Gulbenkian theatre and cinema.

The main hall, which is equipped with natural acoustics and a retractable seating system, can accommodate 500 to 800 individuals, according to bdonline.co.uk.

The new building has been funded by the Colyer-Fergusson Charitable Trust, after whom it will be named.
