Building on Solent's success
Southampton Solent University’s new £25 million building hails the beginning of major redevelopment that will transform the campus and the East Park neighbourhood.
Designed by Scott Brownrigg and due to be completed in 2015, a spectacular atrium will form the central hub of the new teaching block. Measuring 18 metres across, it will include a multifunctional suspended ‘pod’ with a viewing platform above.
The new building will provide centrally located lecture and seminar facilities, together with social and flexible space for exhibitions, shows and events.
The new structure will sit alongside the Sir John Everett Millais building and will be linked to the rest of the East Park Terrace (EPT) site through the atrium, opening up the campus for easier circulation.
