CARDIFF SCHOOL OF ART + DESIGN (Interiors)

Cardiff School of Art and Design

Cardiff School of Art + Design

Austin-Smith:Lord was appointed as Lead Designer for the £10m new build, RIBA Award winning Cardiff School of Art & Design, which is the second major phase of development at the campus following the RIBA Award winning Cardiff School of Management.

The internationally recognised School is now able deliver all its courses and develop its research in a modern facility that brings together all of its interests in fine art, ceramics, product design, illustration, making, graphic communication, textiles and architectural design and technology.

We assisted the client in developing the design brief and we produced a number of design options to suit the constrained site. An options appraisal was carried out, with the preferred option developed through to a successful planning submission.

The client’s aspiration was for an inherently simple to use and low energy building, delivering a high quality piece of design befitting of the School of Art & Design and raising the profile of the Llandaff campus.

Austin-Smith:Lord are our Architects for our completed Management School and our new Art Facility currently being constructed at our Llandaff campus. On both projects they have been pro-active and a pleasure to work with from inception to completion of the project(s).
