Courtyard Building, Franklin College

Courtyard Building, Franklin College

SECTOR: Education/Civic – CONTRACT VALUE: £1,100,000.00 – DATE COMPLETED: September 2013

AWARDS: RIBA Regional Award 2014 & LABC Building Excellence Award 2014

This new building, designed as the public face for the college, provides a single point of access and houses support services for all students, staff and visitors. The original 1950’s brick built school has been reinterpreted in the design of the new building in terms of scale, form and most particularly Flemish bond brickwork forming a ‘skin’ that wraps around the building.

The new building is aligned on a central axis with the Catholic Church opposite and there is a civic ‘locking in’ of the new building with the church. The brickwork above the entrance is extended to form a clock tower in a conversational response to the church tower opposite.
