Durham College South Wing Expansion

Adamson Associates won the ‘Superbuild Design Competition for Durham College & University Centre’ with their dramatic design proposal for this two-storey signature academic building and associated renovations and additions.

The design of the signature building takes the context of the existing college and inserts a dynamic curved form thereby breaking the mould of the existing college. The Learning Commons showcases the technological and learning heart of Durham College. An information tower, which is a re-interpretation of a traditional clock/bell tower, is visible from the surrounding streets and acts as a powerful icon.
