Wimbledon College of Art
A new BREEAM Outstanding studio building for Wimbledon College of Art, designed as a simple, flexible enclosure with excellent natural light and ventilation.
This new addition to the Wimbledon Campys introduced at the souther end of a range of studio and workshop spaces provides high quality multi-purpose spaces suitable for a range of course.
The project is an exemplar of sustainable design for the Univerity of Arts London. Sustainable measures include north-south orientation, a high performance envelope, controlled natural ventilation, rain water harvesting and photo-voltic solar collection.
Linking the new building to a number of adjacent studios there is a canopy structure with much needed semi-outdoor storage below.
The College is within a conservation area and the modern zinc-clad design was well received by the London Borough of Merton Design Review Panel at planning stage.
