Ceri's project was entitled 'Music School for Woolwich - Enriching the public realm'.

This design for a new music school focused on enhancing the shared experience of the students and public by creating an interior topography of public spaces which invite urban life into the building, whilst enriching Woolwich’s public realm. Carefully controlling public interaction with the musical programme provides animated and lively spaces; this relationship between public and private space creates sonic variation throughout the building. The project was also inspired by the sense of curiosity generated through the dichotomy of enclosure and exposure in the work of artists such as Eduardo Chillida.

"Central to the studio’s work was an initial master-planning exercise in Woolwich, which expanded into diverse individual civic responses. Ceri Hedderwick Turner’s music school embeds the initial public realm work into a tenable sonic landscape. Using influences such as Chillida, Hedderwick Turner’s competent work interweaves practice rooms with public spaces in a persuasive and engaging manner." - Chris Romer-Lee



Alongside the practical and intellectual challenges of the teaching, I particularly enjoyed working in the fun and supportive atmosphere of the Studio - having all the undergraduates in a single space."
