Maidwell Hall Northampton, United Kingdom

Maidwell Hall




Maidwell Hall was designed by ORMS architects as part of a performing arts complex for Maidwell Hall School in Northamptonshire.

AMPC, working closely with acousticians Sound Space Design, undertook a number of sightline tests to improve the audience and performers’ experience in the circular auditorium. It was important to consider the needs of a mixed audience of adults and young people, plus those of a variety of school and visiting company performances.

SSD was also retained to provide advice on the acoustics aspects of the performance hall and teaching block; the former including provision for performance and assemblies, the latter comprising music practice rooms and teaching spaces, and classrooms for other departments, including English.
