We are pleased to start the year off with announcing the Student Services Centre for the University of Cambridge has been selected as one of the 2021 Civic Trust Awards' successful projects. The project completed in 2019 is one of only 40 national and international chosen as a winning project.
The Civic Trust awards celebrate projects that bring a positive social, environmental, cultural and community impact and we are excited to see our educational project Student Services Centre being recognised. A big congratulations to everyone who was involved in its realisation!
'The new wing is a low-tech, column-free concrete structure with a façade of closely spaced brick piers, meanwhile the listed buildings have been stripped of later additions to reveal their original qualities. Notable spaces include the barrel-vaulted library and the Edwardian lecture theatre used in the film ‘A Theory of Everything’. A stone doorway, rescued from a demolished exam hall, leads directly to the central hallway and forms one of two main entrances, resulting in alternative routes for students seeking privacy. The quality of internal environment within the building is key in promoting student wellbeing and the support they receive.'
