A new studio and teaching spaces are provided over two levels in a courtyard extension to the grade II listed Sutherland Building. The complexity of the latter is confronted subtly, with a building that seeks to belong, while concentrating on the architectural potential of its internal connections.

The architectural additions have a high degree of refinement, providing a strong sense of identity and expressing clearly the sense of a new home for the School of Architecture.
