RIBA Award winner, 19 May 2011

The project involves the skilful renovation of two existing historic buildings to create a contemporary university facility. Entry to the ground floor is controlled from four axial points which lead to a top-lit central space between the two buildings making a complex series of spaces easily understandable and accessible.

The quality of light offers a pleasant environment for multi-functional break out spaces, relaxation and work areas appropriate to the learning environment. Glazed internal partitions create a sense of transparency and interest in the classroom environment.

The transition between new and old is seamless. The restoration work aimed to re-use as much of the building fabric as possible, exposing ceilings, facades and internal elevations that had been obscured for years.
