New Extension building at Kingston School of Art, Knights Park

Name New Extension building
Campus Kingston School of Art, Knights Park
Key stages
Planning application early 2017

Kingston School of Art is recognised as one of the leading art and design schools in the world.

To maintain this outstanding reputation and competitive edge it is important the facilities meet the same high standards. We are planning to refurbish the existing New Extension building to make it more in keeping with the faculty needs. Our proposals involve updating the internal layout, improving the external appearance and replacing the existing Mill Street student residential accommodation with new academic space.

Extension building - final design

Have your say

On Wednesday 7 December 2016, we held a public consultation event and displayed our design proposals for the New Extension building. At this event we sought feedback from residents which we took on board as we finalised the overall design.

In March 2017 we hosted a follow-up exhibition to present the updated plans which we submitted to the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames on 17 March 2017.
