Humanities Building, University of Nottingham

A new eco-friendly arts faculty building in Nottingham has created an appealing space for students on the University Park Campus. Our design for the humanities facility was selected by the university owing to its sympathetic design and attractive landscaping, subtly linking the new building with the existing history department.

Bringing together the whole School of Philosophy, Theology, Art History, Classics and Archaeology, the building creates a new learning space from two elements. The south-facing block contains shallow-plan cellular offices, and the north-facing block houses the larger scale open-plan offices, laboratories and seminar rooms.
