The Birley Centre

New performing arts centre for Eastbourne College, including the 200 seat Jennifer Winn auditorium, which serves the school and local community as well as being used by Glyndebourne Opera. Acoustics was a key factor in the design, undertaken with architects Miller Bourne.

The dramatic array of plywood ceiling panels enhances the sound diffusion, whilst the variable acoustics mean the auditorium’s character can be changed to suit music or speech performances.
