Designed as / public private property group Downing and Leeds Metropolitan University, provides about 110,000 square meters of new offices and teaching spaces and 240 student dormitories in a building in the floor 23. A new Baptist church on the north side of the full scheme.
The building is designed as a solid form of a landscape based on the geological heritage of Yorkshire and the wealth of sculpture. The low rise buildings such as sweeping the continuous low-rise three floors close to the listed building, up to five floors.
The biggest decline in eight buildings were reduced to six floors before rising to the highest point plan of 23 floors. Steep roof is reflected in the collection of buildings that have sharp edges and corners triangular cantilever projections.
With its large windows have been designed as a stream of water flowing over rock formations. Design objective is strengthened by the choice of cor-ten steel as a solid, statues and change the materials, built as a rain screen facade.
construction sites has overcome the difficult challenges with the master plan which manages the highway from downtown while passing by enabling future growth. It is a key location of Leeds Central and the new public space linking the urban area is a key element in the plans of significant landscapes.
The key to success of this program is an innovative approach to the design elevation respectively. We have developed our own software program to conduct a thorough analysis of every game counting building facades. The result is a very varied aspects particular to this system, optimizing daylight and reduced the penetration of solar energy.
