Bilborough Sixth Form College, Nottingham
The competition-winning design for Bilborough College sets the new facilities within a parkland setting, with the existing landscaping being enhanced by sensitive planting and remodelling.
Major elements of the design include a stepped amphitheatre, located between the college and the sports hall and a wet land area to create a sustainable draining system within the site.
- Interior Design
key feature of the new building is three linked trapezoidal elements which contain teaching accommodation grouped into six curriculum 'clusters' including visual and performing arts, sciences, humanities and cross-college facilities. Spaces between the clusters contain staircase and toilet facilities.
The teaching clusters are united by a linear street which provides the primary circulation route across the building at each level and also creates areas for informal social activity.
