About the project

"This is a very innovative project, while remaining within much more limited budget than the architect's previous 'Tate Switch House' project, to which it bears some similarities. It's a playful new space for students to innovate."

The building has achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating. Its efficient form is derived to deliver the correct levels of daylight control, insulation, and natural ventilation within a flexible envelope, combined with durable, low maintenance materials and adaptable services organisation.
