These provide improved light and ventilation.

An old, rundown brick building on the site of the Aldeburgh Music campus was turned into a contemporary space suitable for rehearsals, meetings, or even an exhibition space.

Decaying existing windows were left alone and vegetation growing over the dovecote was protected to allow it to continue a natural process of ageing and decay.
