UAL seeks architect for Camberwell College fit out

  • Comment

University of the Arts London (UAL) is recruiting an architect for an £11.7 million fit out of new and existing buildings on its Camberwell College of Arts campus

The project will upgrade the interior of the prestigious art school’s Brutalist main building (pictured) and create additional spaces inside its Stephen Marshall Architects-designed ‘New Academic Building’.

Planned to complete in September 2017, the New Academic Building will feature a 260-seat lower ground floor lecture theatre and a ground floor cafeteria, kitchen and workshops.

A first floor learning resource centre and Category A upper floors are also planned for the building which is expected to be ready for fit out works next February.

Planned improvements to the existing main building – set to start this autumn – include new windows, public realm and external remodelling to create a graded ramp.

A new reception area, art gallery and lower ground floor walk-through to the campus’ rear courtyard are also expected to be delivered.

Designed by Murray, Ward & Partners in 1960 – the Brutalist building was built as an extension to the school’s original 1898 home.

The New Academic Building is part of a larger £62 million regeneration designed by Stephen Marshall Architects which will also deliver new student accommodation.

Former high-profile teachers at the school include artist and architect Victor Passmore and the painter Frank Auerbach.

The winning team – set to be announced in March – will develop plans up to RIBA Stage 3 ahead of the project being handed over to a design and build contractor.

The deadline for submitting tenders is 26 February.
