University of Stirling comes together with Campus Central
April 30 2018£21m campus hub to transform the student experience at its disparate estate on the outskirts of town.
Campus Central will incorporate spaces for study, learning and collaboration, bringing with it enhanced student support facilities as well as improved retail and dining. Designed by Page\Park the hub has been conceived to maximise connectivity, create a new civic entrance to the campus and better integrate with the surrounding landscape.
To achieve this a new build link building has been conceived, arranged over three levels and finished in granite rainscreen and light grey stone cladding with curtain wall glazing. Doubling as a new gateway to the Macroberts Arts Centre and Andrew Miller building.
In a statement the architects observed: “The new three storey entrance Pavilion is offset from the Library with a three storey void inspired by the idea of a gorge.
“This stepped profile facing south creates a degree of shelter to the Queens Court in the form of a contemporary loggia whilst giving clear acknowledgement to the two entrances at either end.”
It is hoped work can begin on the project by early next year to complete by September 2020, together with creation of a re-landscaped and traffic-free Queen’s Court.
