Seven student services have been relocated from across the city into a new four storey structure stitched onto two listed buildings, the former Art School and Old Cavendish Wing. Historic and new elements are linked by a dramatic timber-lined hallway. Whereas the new part is a low tech, column free concrete structure with a facade of closely spaced brick piers, the listed buildings have been stripped back to reveal their original qualities. Notable spaces include the barrel vaulted library and Edwardian lecture theatre.
