Create an inspiring performance studio and classroom


Charity, Inspire Suffolk, wanted to convert an old gymnasium into a studio 'performance space' and a classroom that could be used for a huge range of activities by both Inspire Suffolk and the wider community.

What the project involved...

This was an intricate project as it was important to keep the look and feel of a gym in the original space, while reducing the space and blending in a new classroom/training space. In particular, the addition of a jumbo wall had to be blended into look like it had always been there which required us to individually hand cut the areas under the steel rafters.

Overall the the project activities included:

  • Design and space planning
  • Creation of a 'jumbo' wall to divide the space
  • New windows and fire door
  • Outside ramp for DDA access
  • All electrical work: Power / Data / LED lighting & Heaters
  • Suspended ceiling

With valuable funding from the Big Lottery, it was vital that we worked with a partner that fully understood our needs, exceeded our expectations and have enabled us to provide our local community with this legacy facility."
