Ashton 6th Form College wanted to create a hub for both dining and socialising, whilst also providing a connection between the main building and existing ICT suite to improve the student flow across campus.
Glazing Vision’s modular fixed Flushglaze rooflight system was installed to harness large amounts of natural daylight; this was situated above the stairwell leading to the mezzanine level on the north side of the building. Each individual glazed section is supported structurally by aluminium back to back angles, which complement and enhance the contemporary style of the building’s interior.
Externally the project build is surrounded by vertical bronze aluminium fins. These fins help to cast an array of different and unusual viewpoints for those indoors. Aside from the visual aspect, the aluminium fins help to provide shade and create privacy to the adjacent residences.
The College, located in Lancashire, has recently been awarded ‘Best Commercial Build’ at the Northern Design Awards for the design of their student centre.
