Housing and Urban Design
Education and Community
GSE University of Bristol
For this project we developed new teaching spaces, conference facilities and science labs for the Graduate school of Education within the shell of the original 1960s building.
Since the school first moved into 35 Berkeley Square in 1965 the field of education has changed enormously both in terms of pedagogic approach and the technology available to support student learning. This project set out to use the refurbishment of the school to update the teaching and learning spaces available to meet the needs of teaching and learning in the Twenty First Century. The project focussed in particular on the integration of current developments in ICT within the classroom environment.
Working alongside other members of the design team we developed designs to improve natural daylighting, environmental performance and everyday operation of the building.
