The design sought to create an inspirational and flexible learning area within the context of a site with a disparate group of buildings, a number of which are Grade II listed.


“The new Learning Resources Centre not only provides an inspirational library and mezzanine ICT facilities, but also links existing buildings with contrasting styles. IID Architects’ design complements the existing buildings whilst also reflecting the spirit of the age and combining a sense of excitement with the calm that independent learning requires.”

"The high quality of design and materials of the new building complements those of the existing listed buildings."
