Grimshaw for Bath Spa University
Contract value: £23m
GIA: 8,500m2
Cost per m2: £2,706

This is a repurposing of the Farrell/Grimshaw grade II listed Herman Miller Factory, completed in 1976. It brings together Bath Spa University’s Schools of Art and Design as a single creative community. The building offers environments for creativity and inspiration, specialist and bespoke technical workshops, areas for quiet contemplation and communal open areas to engage with others. Flexible spaces allow reconfiguration, and a restored modular facade system meets changing internal requirements. New double glazing and additional insulation has dramatically improved thermal performance.
