Hawkins\Brown completes 'unapologetic' cor-ten clad college

  • Comment

Hawkins\Brown has completed this £9 million technical college in Cambridge

The 670-place college, which specialises in biomedical and environmental science, has been clad in cor-ten steel with engravings by artist Jo Chapman.

On the ground floor the 5,300m² building contains social learning spaces including a lecture hall and canteen, while classrooms and science laboratories are located on the floors above.

The building also includes a ‘superlab’ - a flexible teaching space designed to accommodate up to 350 students at once.  

Carol Lees, partner at Hawkins\Brown, said: ‘The building is strong and unapologetic to make a statement within the context of Addenbrooke’s Hospital and other biomedical research facilities.

The building is strong and unapologetic

‘It maintains a sense of space and light throughout the interior, combining open volumes and light wells in open plan areas, with smaller intimate spaces and work rooms to create a bright and vibrant atmosphere, ideally suited to a varied and relaxed learning environment.’
