London College of Creative Media (LCCM) has organised a ceremony launch the “Music Box”, the new home of the College. Several celebrities, including Myleene Klass and Neil Coyle, participated in the event.
The new campus is located on Union Street in central London, within easy walking distance of Southwark underground station. The “Music Box” provides students with unrivalled resources for music, writing and technology. The building consists of four floors of bespoke workshop spaces, recording studios, music technology labs and a basement music venue.
Darius Khwaja, Principal and Founder of LCCM, said: “With the new campus, we have a flagship space in the centre of London, where music, technology and writing can all meet. We love our new home. On every floor there are recording studios, mac labs, practice booths and performance rooms buzzing with the creative talent of our students.”
“The significant investment in new facilities and equipment at LCCM will help students to become professional performers and the great artists of the future.”
Trevor Morriss said: “The inspiring brief for the new LCCM campus called for a unique creative environment, which welcomes artistic and intellectual exploration of modern music.”
“The concept and architectural approach was derived through the desire to reflect the creative energy that is generated inside the College onto the streets outside to engage both its users and the public. SPPARC is delighted to have conceived and delivered the “Music Box”—a place for living and a space for learning; a genuine mixed-use development.”
The new campus allows the College to further its aim—to transform higher education in music by connecting students to industry and investment. The performance spaces and music venue on campus provide a fantastic opportunity for live performances and master classes.
