The Palmer-Tomkinson Centre
The building has been commissioned to provide modern facilities to develop the arts and technology department for the college. It is envisaged to attract substantial income for the college by letting the facilities to the local community as a venue for weddings, local film club, performing groups and sports groups.
A fully glazed foyer is introduced to create an inviting space for social gatherings. An amphitheatre, linked to a bar, will encourage outdoor performances and learning for the students. The building has successfully integrated commercial needs and at the same time maintains a high level of control and security for the college’s management.
Colours have been used throughout the building to imitate nature and to assist way finding. The building has proved to be a success, as bookings for the building have far outweighed college’s expectation.
