The Sage Gateshead

sage gateshead

The Sage Gateshead is a Foster & Partners designed centre for musical education, performance and conferences situated on the south bank of the River Tyne. The stunning curved glass and stainless steel structure contains three performance spaces, two auditoria of 1,700 and 450 seating capacity as well as smaller rehearsal and performance halls.

Recognising the Sage’s requirement for upholstery fabrics with high acoustic properties, a unique variation of Bute’s Kilmory fabric was used to give a crisp looking, technical fabric, in keeping with the building’s structure and feel.
