Portland Building Phase III, University of Nottingham
The third phase of this major redevelopment at the University of Nottingham strengthens visual and physical links between the original neo-classical 1950s building and Michael Hopkins’ 2006 extension. The intervention takes place over five storeys and transforms academic space into a student focussed environment. The main entrance is relocated to respond to student movement and creates multi-height ‘welcome hub’.

- Interior Finishing
- Space Planning
Breakout spaces and areas where students can learn, socialise, relax or collaborate are spread widely across the building. A new retail corridor has been designed to bring a bookshop, a clothing store, a university run cafe and a hairdressers together in one area of the building.
Set within fantastic grounds, the concept is to bring ‘the outside in’ which is proven to increase individuals’ productivity and wellbeing, whilst studying. Faux greenery and materials suggestive of the landscape are used widely within the scheme.
