Bond Bryan Architects has revealed images of is new Westminster Kingsway College scheme for central London, after bulldozers moved in to flatten the existing late 1950s Ron Herron-designed building on the site.
The white-cladded building on Gray's Inn Road, which was designed by the LCC's in-house design team, was turned down for listing last year because English Heritage thought it had been 'too heavily' altered.
It sits next to a Brutalist block, built in the 1970s, which is next in line for demolition.
The new £50 million King's Cross Centre educational development is one of three major schemes for the central London College.
Due to complete next year, the project will be followed by developments at the college's Victoria and Soho Centres, as the institution begins a £90 million consolidation programme to bring together its six existing sites in Camden and Westminster.
Bruce Raw, associate director at Bond Bryan Architects, said: 'The Kings Cross Centre site abuts a Grade II*-listed ancient cemetery and sits within a sensitive residential conservation area, so one of the main challenges was responding to the urban grain of a constrained site, as with many central London projects.'by Richard Waite
