New UAL Campus for Central Saint Martins at King’s Cross





“Following an original competition-winning scheme for a new building for Central St. Martin’s, part of the University of the Arts London, we were asked to masterplan and design a new 32,000 m² campus for 5,000 students.
The design combines the 19th century Grade II listed Granary building and transit sheds – with a 200 metre long new building that uses industrial materials and creates robust spaces for the students, full of natural light. An internal street draws daylight in and acts as a central circulation spine with suspended walkways, cafes, film, graphic and light projections.”
