Loughborough Design School, Loughborough

This is a 7,920 square metre building comprising teaching spaces, research laboratories, workshops, computer suites, offices and cafe, and is located within the existing university campus. It is a deep plan building on a roughly triangular footprint.

Environmentally the inclusion of chimneys within the heart of the deep plan has helped the building to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating. Structurally, the choice of concrete works well, offering both a robust and beautiful quality of finish to the interior spaces.

Overall what impresses is the quality of natural daylight, the ease of circulation through the building, the integration of a simple but sophisticated approach to servicing and the overall quality of materials and attention to detail – all on a quite modest budget.
