Bard-inspired university building.
We designed a nine-storey building on Keyworth Street, the main thoroughfare through the university.
Our flexible teaching space sits alongside a west-facing glazed hall, which acts as a naturally ventilated buffer, mediating air and light from the hot, bright side of the building.
The hall contains twin wooden towers dedicated to teaching, designed as ‘Romeo & Juliet’ pairings of rooms and terrace balconies.
At foyer level we created space for exhibitions, lectures and performances. The roof curve contains studios for the University School of Architecture.
