Threesixty Architecture to deliver Orkney research hub
May 4 2017Orkney Research + Innovation Campus to be housed within the redeveloped former Old Academy and Primary School of Stromness.
The £6.5m project is being led by Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Orkney Islands Council to provide a home for institutes, consultancies and startups in an environment melding research, academia and business.
In a statement the architects said: “The design by Threesixty Architecture will renovate and unify the two existing buildings as one campus. Each building will feature new entrances, improved circulation, open plan offices, and shared meeting spaces which frame views to the Stromness harbour to create an inspiring setting for users and visitors alike. The historic Old Academy building façades will be largely preserved while the Primary School envelope will be entirely upgraded, harmonising it within the urban context of Stromness.”
Work is expected to commence on-site later in the year for completion by 2019.
