Wells Cathedral

About the Project

Cedars Hall is a word class performing arts venue for the prestigious
Wells Cathedral School and is described as the most audacious
development in the school’s history. Acoustic performance was of
key importance along with the aesthetics of the hall and Capricorn
collaborated with the building contractor to design an impressive
lifting blind system which disappeared beneath the floor void when
fully open with no fixed cassette at the top of the reveal. In addition,
gravity drop zip side channel blinds were installed to the high
level clerestory windows to achieve both acoustic and blackout for
performances by the school’s 200 specialist musicians.
