The building successfully balances the functional requirements of the brief with the client’s aspiration for a high quality environment where people will want to be and want to learn. The client asked for a modern learning environment, and due to its location adjacent a main train line, a quality building emphasising the culture of Siemens rail and of NSARE.
Working within an Arup led team; we developed a building with a pleasingly modern aesthetic, its simple, rectangular, mono pitched roofed form addresses the railway frontage whilst the building is entirely clad in polycarbonate that will glow strikingly when backlit at night.
