The new £6.5m University Centre was won in invited competition in 2004 and represents our third project for the University of Winchester. The 3000sqm building sits on a steeply sloping site, where the natural topography of the campus is both a virtue in terms of character and a hindrance to access.

The design involves two main entrances courts with secondary access at mid level to accommodation, which includes reception, venue. bars, cinema, restaurant, internet cafe, bookshop and offices. Over four floors the cross section links an 11 metre height difference across the site and is conceived as two halves. The lower two levels are buried into the hillside, while the upper floors shelter beneath a delicate roof canopy that floats out over the incline.
