Library & Student Hub, Ambleside Campus, University of Cumbria

The practice is architect and landscape architect for the transformation of the University of Cumbria's Ambleside Campus. Refurbished buildings and a landscaping scheme will create a 21stcentury university campus within the National Park setting. The new Library and Hub in a converted barn structure is now the social heart of the campus. The existing timber roof structure has been exposed, greatly increasing the building's overall volume, while redesigned windows maximise natural light, creating an attractive working environment within the remodelled building. The new extension contains a timber-clad café with generous
glazing providing views out over the courtyard and campus beyond.
