|:||Following an original competition-winning scheme for a new building for Central St. Martin’s, part of the University of the Arts London, Stanton Williams were asked to masterplan and design a new 32,000 m² campus for 5,000 students. The design combines the 19th century Grade II listed Granary building and transit sheds – with a 200 metre long new building that uses industrial materials and creates robust spaces for the students, full of natural light. An internal street draws daylight in and acts as a central circulation spine with suspended walkways, cafes, film, graphic and light projections. The spaces are designed to be flexible and ‘raw’, to allow the different departments within the college to develop their own identities, whilst maintaining the integrity of the buildings as a whole. The main hall has been used on several occasions for Mary Katrantzou's fashion shows.|
