A collaborative project with Timothy Ashworth and Andrew Turner.

The InterACT project supported the development of Abby’s performance hall design for Sistema Scotland. Working with a civil engineering and a quantity surveying student, Abby project managed the design team. Their blended approach to collaboration and communication allowed the team to holistically contribute to the design development whilst remaining under the budget of £3.5million.


Inspired by pitched tent-like structures, the proposal involved a Glulam structural system which is exposed externally, revealing the CLT acoustic panel internal volume of the performance hall.
