Location: Norwich, Norfolk
Client: Norwich University of the Arts
Project Year: 2014
Cost: N/AThe Guntons Building is a key building on the Norwich University of the Arts campus. Before our intervention it was dark, dated and difficult to navigate. By inserting a large glazed atrium at the heart of the building we have utterly transformed its appearance and usability. A striking steel staircase now connects departments that were once separated, while daylight is brought deep into the creative studios. The atrium gives the building a strong contemporary identity, and allows staff and students to interact more easily. A refurbished entrance offers a more welcoming presence for the University and a friendlier face to passers by.
