The New Extension building proposals have been designed by Sterling Prize-winning architects Haworth Tompkins.
Our proposals retain and re-use what works well - the concrete frame, brickwork, stair and lift towers - and replaces elements that are worn out of contribute negatively to the performance or appearance of the building.
The proposed materials such as steel window surrounds, canopies and entrances are proposed to complement the warm brick of the existing building and surrounding area.
We want to refurbish and reorganise the New Extension building with teaching and learning excellence as a priority.
The Mill Street extension will be set back from the existing building line to create improved access and allow for enhanced landscaping. It will be the same height and scale as the existing building.
We will need to relocate some Kingston School of Art teaching activities temporarily to other nearby buildings from September 2017. The University has obtained planning permission to allow teaching at its River House site.
