Duggan Morris wins go-ahead for Richmond college scheme

Duggan Morris Architects has won planning permission for a new £5 million Arts and Education Wing at the Richmond Adult Community College (RACC) campus in west London

Featuring a reception, theatre, art department and central cloister, the competition-winning project extends the site’s original Edwardian school and converts a 1960s local authority building.

Due to higher education spending cuts, the RACC was forced to consolidate its two sites 3km apart onto a single campus.

According to the practice the ‘resultant scheme proposes a cluster of simple cubic forms of varying mass and height, wrapped in a softly textured brick skin and articulated with over-sized picture windows and topped with metallic roof- level lanterns.’
