The Passmore Centre, South Bank University, London

Categories: Education

The Passmore Centre will create an innovative and state-of-the-art hub for students on apprenticeships and employer supported programmes.

It will accommodate new teaching facilities, social and events space, meeting rooms and staff offices. The project includes the renovation and extension of the building and the creation of a new ‘study’ park.

The original Grade II listed building was a former library. Our proposals have sought to retain as much of the original building as possible. Both staircases are retained, original openings are revealed and unsympathetic alterations removed. New accommodation will be added to this restored shell to meet the brief and access requirements. The new facility seeks to revive and reinvigorate a valued local building with a rich past.

The Passmore Centre will act as a central point for independent careers advice and a bridge into the university for FE colleges.
