Cranfield University, The Vincent Building Bedford, UK

Incorporating the refurbishment of an existing aircraft hangar previously used as a sports hall, the Vincent Building offers a variety of teaching, laboratory and support spaces set around a dramatic atrium.

Steel, glass and colour were used with great effect to enhance the dynamism of the spaces and to unify old with new.

The area within the hangar and atrium was conceived as one large space, flooded with daylight through rooflights inserted between the exposed timber and steel trusses of the existing saw-toothed roof.
