This building is home to The Department of Music.
This education facility is located in a former Victorian hospital is ideally equipped for world-leading research and teaching in music. Much of the teaching takes place in our two light and airy Ensemble Rooms, which are also ideal for rehearsing medium-sized ensembles.
The Ethnomusicology Room acts as both a small-group rehearsal and teaching space and a storage space for the Department’s large collection of instruments from non-Western traditions, which include drums and mbiras from sub-Saharan Africa, a large collection of Korean percussion, and a range of instruments in the North Indian Classical tradition, such as tabla, harmoniums, santoor and tanpura.
In addition to the Soundhouse rooms, there are two practice rooms are based within the Jessop building which are the main space for instrumental lessons during the day. Students can also book out these rooms using the online booking system. Both rooms are equipped with upright pianos and music stands.

Sauerbruch Hutton is an architecture practice based in Berlin, Germany. The architectural firm was founded by Matthias Sauerbruch and Louisa Hutton in 1989.
The German architecture firm creates functional, sensual and conscientious architecture with individuality and personality. The practice is noted for its synthesis of colour in the design process, and for the use of fluid curvilinear forms.
The design firm’s architecture is also known for its technical innovation and environmental sustainability, particularly double-skin facades on tall buildings, with the GSW Headquarters in Berlin and KfW Westarkade in Frankfurt as examples.
