|:||Located on the banks of the River Lee, the CIT Cork School of Music provides a bespoke academic facility in a unique city centre setting. The 12000sqm ‘state of the art’ School provides music studios, 450 seat rehearsal hall, theatre space, music library, recording and dance studios, offices, classrooms and lecture theatres. Externally the palette of red sandstone, buff limestone, blue brick and animated glazing reinforces the design of a confident, civic, and contemporary set-piece by the river. The theatre, rehearsal hall and tuition studios are solid and geological in form while the curved limestone facade reflects the river bend. In contrast the top floor library and studios act as light boxes, benefit from stunning city views and are reflective of the sky. The main rehearsal hall, although a simple rectangular box, has great acoustic and performance flexibility.|
