London, United Kingdom
St Martin-in-the-Fields is a landmark church looking over Trafalgar Square. In 2006 the church embarked on a £40m building project to restore, transform and enlarge, thereby creating a new sequence of beautiful, practical and inspiration spaces to serve the community, visitors and those in need.
A new music rehearsal room forms part of the new underground extension of the historic St Martin-in-the-Fields church, located directly over the Northern line. Trains can be clearly heard in the building and so there was a requirement to isolate the room to provide good conditions for music practice and performance.
A range of CDM products and bespoke solutions were used to ensure that all of the internal structures were not in contact with the un-isolated surrounding structures. The room has a crisp and clear acoustic with a marvellous diffuse sound field.
