Elm Workspace strikes the right chord with Wiltshire Music Centre

By Anita Jaynes on 3 October, 2014

The Wiltshire Music Centre opened its doors with a gala event after an interior refurbishment by another Wiltshire business, Elm Workspace.

The Grand opening of the regenerated Wiltshire Music Centre took place last month, marking the completion of a four-month project.

The Wiltshire Music Centre offers an abundance of audible and visual delights for the local community, often drawing national and international performers to entertain and delight audiences of all ages. However, after 16 years and thousands of visitors and performances, the Centre needed revitalising.

Elm Workspace who are headquartered in Calne were asked to modernise the foyer, creating a striking yet practical area that would mirror the diverse creativity radiating from within the 300-seat concert hall.

As well as project managing the refurbishment, Elm were tasked with re-plastering, re-carpeting and fitting new lighting, all the while liaising with contractors who were simultaneously working on an extension to the Music Centre.

The foyer’s new furniture was under the jurisdiction of Burtt-Jones & Brewer, design partner of Wiltshire Music Centre, who selected the perfect accompaniments for one of the most successful small-scale regional arts lottery projects in the UK.

The installation of a new lighting structure, designed by world famous British artist, Bruce Munro, also had to be taken into consideration. Elm worked closely with the design installation team, ensuring every meticulous detail was fine-tuned to perfection.

The result of the four-month project speaks volumes; the foyer has been transformed into a symphony of practicality and stunning aesthetics, giving the Wiltshire Music Centre and proud locals alike, something to really sing about.
