Richard Murphy Architects handover Cambridge campus
September 23 2015
This joins earlier phases of work such as the Faculty of Health and social care completed last year and the £1m conversion of the former Ragged School into a music therapy centre.
Incorporating public art the phased sequence of buildings form a continuous new street frontage, employing an innovative natural ventilation system to reduce running costs and provide a distinctive built profile with externally expressed brick chimneys.
James Mason, director, Richard Murphy Architects said: “The site at Young Street was an ambitious project for Anglia Ruskin to grow out with its main East Road campus.
“Situated in the Mill Road Conservation Area, it had lain derelict for a number of years. Through the careful design of the new buildings, the restoration of the existing, and the creation of new routes and external spaces, we had an opportunity to reinstate a small piece of Cambridge’s urban fabric.”
Students will begin moving into their facilities from next month.
