The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama is Wales's national music and drama conservatoire. The building comprises the exquisitely timber-lined Dora Stoutzker Concert Hall, the intimate 200-seat Richard Burton Theatre, along with studio, teaching, rehearsal spaces and cafe. The foyer has become one of the most popular community spaces in Cardiff where students, staff and the public meet.
By capitalising on the building's inherent thermal mass the building achieves BREEAM 'Excellent' standard. It represents remarkable value and has given a previously introspective academic institution a civic presence.
