Winchester College Arts Centre
In both the Arts Centre and the Theatre, single new elements are added to transform the nature and the use of the building.
At the theatre a porch which has the same section as the building, turns the axis and welcomes audiences.
At the Arts Centre, a new gallery between the two old infirmary blocks makes connections, covers entrances and makes a new centre to which the sides are drawn. The ceramic tile-clad cube stands on four steel columns with a steeply pitched cross-gabled roof, reflecting those on the existing building.
The design responds intimately to the form and spaces already existing on the site. By means of a single new structure, disparate elements of Winchester College are brought harmoniously together and proclaim a courtyard for the Arts.
