We’re delighted to announce that the Sir William Henry Bragg building has been shortlisted for Higher Education Project of the Year (over £20m) at the AJ Architecture Awards 2022.
The project breathes new life into the Grade II* listed Old Mining Building and provides the wider University community with a new gateway to the understanding and research of physical science. In addition to crafting a new space for the community, the development delivers a state-of-the-art facility with an array of teaching, learning and researching resources.
Through new landscaping, a public space is provided on the outskirts of the campus and main road, introducing spaces for students, staff and visitors to socialise. The new landscape also encourages wildlife and biodiversity while creating attractive, varied spaces for wellbeing. New art installations, such as a commissioned sculpture and various lighting installations- further enhance the campus.
Other facilities in the campus include a new reception, a large central atrium, a new café, communal learning spaces for students and staff, student support and an information centre. The building offers clear vertical circulation and a social ribbon of break-out and drop-in spaces.
The awards, which celebrate and reward design excellence in architecture, will be held at the Hilton London Metropole on Wednesday 23rd November.
