LSO at St Luke’s
Earnscliffe worked with the architects, Levitt Bernstein Associates and the London Symphony Orchestra, as access consultant for the £20 million restoration and conversion of Hawksmoor’s Grade I listed formerly derelict church to create a music education centre and 370-seat concert hall for the London Symphony Orchestra.
Earnscliffe was responsible for key input in the negotiations with English Heritage to ensure that full access was provided for both performers and members of the public, whilst respecting the building’s Grade I listed status. The completed project won the three prestigious awards for accessible design, the ADAPT Award 2003, English Heritage Civic Awards (Access) 2004 and Islington Access Award 2004.
Earnscliffe helped project managers ABL Cultural Consulting to raise significant funds by ap- plying to the Bridge House Estate. Earnscliffe identified access items suitable for Trust funding, made presentations to Trust representatives, including the Corporation of London access offi- cer, prepared reports and responded to queries.
