The aim was to express the importance of music at King's College School Wimbledon. In the resulting concert hall, HESS TIMBER's expertise was in demand. The HESS HYBRID system was used to manufacture beams made up of spruce with a top layer of American White Oak to create the warm and aesthetically pleasing look desired by the architects. The auditorium can accommodate up to 200 people and there is also a stage for a 70-piece orchestra.
