About the project

The scheme was conceived from the University of Winchester’s demand for social learning spaces. The University’s brief was to provide a learning space for 80 fixed workstations, with café areas for dining, study and socialising.

The existing original Chapel building structure was retained and significantly upgraded. The overall forms remain unchanged with two extensions to the rear providing service areas; whilst significant structural repair, insulation and re-roofing work was carried out to the unusual t&g boarded hyperbolic paraboloid roof structure.

The servery sits within the main space, whilst the extensions enclose WCs to the north-east and storage / food preparation to the north-west. The front (south) elevation was significantly opened up to provide a large expanse of glazing, allowing views out over the campus and filling the overall area with light. A new deck allows activities to spill outside in warm weather.
