Client: Arts University Bournemouth
Location: Bournemouth, UK
Completion: October 2010
The main entrance to a campus is extremely important as it sets the tone for the College and is an integral part of its public face. This is particularly important in today’s market where students and their parents are to be regarded more in terms of a client than of a beneficiary of largesse. With this in mind the new entrance lodge for the Arts University Bournemouth has been carefully designed to project the design ethos of the University and is self consciously referential of the famous Barcelona Pavilion. In this way it seeks to turn the process of the University security into the start of a sequence of controlled spaces and buildings leading towards the main University reception.
