Learning and Development Centre

A combination of a state-of-the-art teaching facility and a professional research base.

Utilising a variety of complementary materials, the high concept design responds positively to the surrounding buildings and slots comfortably into the existing site.

Our vision is of a heart within a ribcage, expressed as an ovoid lecture theatre pod encased within an array of structural glulam.

The white elements provide shade and prevent excessive heat gains whilst the lecture theatre pod's smooth design serves as dynamic contrast to the bold vertical lines of the exterior.

Teaching staff and students are brought together through a 'connection' co-working space, found immediately outside the lecture theatre pod.

The designs also include for offices, flexible teaching rooms, informal meeting spaces, and a cafe close to the reception area.
