The placing of this building has allowed the architect to create a spacious and elegant new pedestrian square in the heart of an extremely dense university campus, and has thereby also allowed a generous amount of natural light into the building, at every level. It is sustainable, and extremely inexpensive. An exemplar of good value for money in that ubiquitous building type: the flexible university teaching building.
The building is the first significant new building of a masterplan by the architect for a five year building programme. This one provides flexible teaching rooms, IT access space, 3 lecture theatres and social space.
At every level this building is an excellent direct response to a clear brief and a very tight budget, resulting in a pleased client.
