The Knights Park Campus has been comprehensively overhauled to provide over 10,000m2 of refurbished creative space for Kingston School of Art. The 1970s Mill Street Building is the campus’ largest: this response embraces the robust, industrial character of what was there, while forming more flexible internal space, maximising natural light and upgrading creative facilities. At the heart of the building are new workshop facilities for ceramics, photography, film production, woodwork, metalwork, plaster, printmaking, book arts and digital hack, all supporting the School’s ethos of Thinking Through Making. The refurbishment is on course to reduce campus CO2 emissions by 52% and achieve BREEAM Outstanding.
