AHR unveils £23m architecture faculty for the University of Bath

  • Comment

The new 6,000macademic building features new double-height studio spaces, workshop and exhibition areas as well as academic offices.

Sited on the University’s Claverton Down campus, the building provides a new purpose-built faculty for engineering and architecture.

The building’s has a simple rythmic façade made up of pre-cast concrete frame elements repeated across a bronze anodised aluminium clad structure. The building’s prominent gallery and exhibition space also serves as a social learning space for students, and provides views through to 3D printing and making spaces. 

The building’s interior spaces are designed to offer the best possible environmental conditions, maximising natural daylight throughout and incorporating a mixed-mode low energy ventilation and cooling solution.

Architect’s statement

The University of Bath sought a robust and durable building that was well executed with good proportion, befitting both engineering and architecture disciplines. Our team, which included architects who have themselves taught in the Department of Architecture, used their own experiences of teaching to add unique value and insight to the project.

Gary Overton, director, AHR
