The new state-of-the-art campus for the City of Westminster College is designed to support new ways of teaching and learning. The buildings geometry rotates around a central, terraced common space which spans 7 floors and is covered by an ETFE air filled pillow roof. The top ETFE layer of each pillow features a 2.8 mm negative dot screen print to reduce solar gain. The use of ETFE as roof material creates a light-filled and open space, conducive to stimulating student interaction. The architectural firm won several awards for their innovative, Scandinavian-inspired design.
