The project is a modern arts teaching facility located within the historic grounds of Lancing College in West Sussex.

The site is adjacent to an existing accommodation block which runs north to south. A break in this existing building offered the opportunity to create a double height entrance space affording access to the teaching areas in addition to providing a space for exhibitions. The teaching spaces are located over two storey's and are split into two accommodation wings separated by a circulation route.


The building makes use of a ‘Termodeck’ mechanical system whereby the pre-cast concrete planks are used to regulate the internal temperature and provide fresh air intake to the building. The building is set into the slope with the reinforced concrete walls expressed at ground level. A system of Zinc panels is used to clad the upper storey.


The successful integration of the building in such a unique setting was recognised with the Sussex Heritage Trust Architectural Award.
