Project summary

The foundation for the design is revealing the framework of the original campus masterplan and using this to form a contemporary sympathetic approach maximising the existing assets to deliver a new invitational entry to the campus.

Axis and sight-lines are used to guide the organic sculptural response to the ground plane whilst mediating the levels to provide equity to all spaces. Seating opportunities abound with informal gathering spaces a key design component.

A formal framed colonnade highlights the axis of the campus with day to day student movement linking through the adjacent informal quad entry. The student entry provides a welcoming invitational space and has been created with a diverse sequence of concrete shards reconciling ramps and providing opportunities for gathering, learning and relaxing.
