Flexible teaching building at the centre of the University of Sussex campus
Positioned at a right angle to James Spence's Boiler House, the teaching building creates a new quadrangle at the heart of the university grounds.
The three-storey building matches the scale and form of the surrounding campus, and is created from locally sourced materials - brick, concrete, white paint and stained glass.
On the ground floor the building contains flexible learning and social space and two 150-seat, elliptical stepped floor lecture theatres, each enclosed by two interlocking C-shaped brick forms.
The upper levels house flexible learning accommodation that allows for a range of group sizes of between 20 and 50 people.
