The Royal Academy of Music in London is a world renowned institution, the oldest conservatoire in Britain. Founded in 1822, the Academy has occupied its striking purpose built Edwardian building since 1911. Designed by Sir Ernest George, the building includes the flagship 400 plus seat Duke’s Hall concert venue. Work in the 1990’s saw the conversion of Nash designed terraces in York Gate and new build David Josefowitz Recital Hall to create a larger joined site.
Stone Edge is undertaking work to update the front entrance to the Royal Academy in 3 main phases. Much of the work will take place during the summer 2017 recess, to keep disruption to students, visitors and supporters to a minimum. Existing hard landscaping and steps will be removed so a new vehicular ramp and entrance way can be built. The new front entrance will feature Portland Stone balustrading and 400m sq sandstone sets. The work will be carried out in association with Donald Insall Associates and Sawyer Fisher.
