Central St. Martin’s

case study martinsFollowing an original competition-winning scheme for a new building for Central St. Martin’s, part of the University of the Arts London, a master plan and design was developed for 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.
