Roman Baths Clore Learning Centre

Awards RIBA South West Award 2023
Housed within the city of Bath’s historic Roman baths, a Grade II-listed building, in a conservation area and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the new Clore Learning Centre strikes a delicate balance between protecting the existing monument and creating new learning facilities that utilise and reveal underused spaces previously inaccessible to the public.
From the street, the only visible marker of the new centre is a discreet entrance at ground level animated with a lightweight metal filigree screen. Beyond, architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios have conceived a meticulously designed and spatially complex sequence of learning spaces accessed via a neat arrangement of vertical and horizontal pedestrian routes.
