Cambridge-based 5th Studio has won planning permission for this creative innovation centre in St Neots, Cambridgeshire. The £1 million project, part of the regeneration of the town's Longsands Quarter, aims to provide space for 'edgling creative industries', as well as links with a number of education and training organisations. 5th Studio was selected through a tender and competitive interview process from a shortlist that included Sarah Featherstone Associates. The winning project will form a gateway to Longsands College, a school with specialist status in media, technology and arts. The building will have a concrete frame, with a transparent enclosure on the lower oors containing the more public rooms and a shared studio space. On the upper two oors, the occupying companies will each have their own 'hut', formed from large-scale structural timber panels that cantilever out beyond the frame. The new building is expected to be in use by spring 2008.
