Booth King worked as structural and civil engineers for this high profile project – The Oglesby Centre at Hallé St Peter’s – at its St. Peter’s Street rehearsal space in Ancoats.

Following a RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) design competition in February 2016, Manchester’s acclaimed symphony orchestra chose the design produced by the team which included: Booth King Partnership, architectural practice Stephenson Studio, acoustic specialists ARUP and M&E consultant Max Fordham.

This extension to the Church creates a 350-seat concert hall, 100-seat recital hall, full academic school and a plethora of music teaching and practice spaces.

The brief for the design was to create a unique and contemporary new building for the musical and academic teaching facilities, providing a state-of-the-art environment which is a fitting platform for the students, creating a new space that would complement the old St Peter’s building.
