Client: Royal Academy of Music
Architect: John McAslan & Partners, London
Contractor: Simons Interiors, London
Type of works: design, supply and installation of vaulted ceilings.
This impressive building is known as the David Josefowitz Recital Hall, and is situated within the courtyard between Marylebone Road and York Gate, London
Decomo designed, manufactured and installed semi-circular barrel-vaulted roof units, with a White concrete grit-blasted finish. The roof was fabricated as 12 quarter-circle segments with a radius of 4m. Each precast element measured 3m wide and weighed approximately 11 tonnes.
Erection works were completed over a single weekend and, as direct access to the courtyard wasnt possible; all precast units were craned into position over the existing York Gate buildings.
