STUDENT CENTRE, UNIVERSITY OF SUSSEX
REFECTORY ROAD, FALMER, BRIGHTON BN1 9BU
Located at the heart of the student residential area, the new student centre was created to help the students to study well, be well and live well while also supporting the wellbeing of everybody using the space. The design narrative is rooted in the local context reflecting the Sussex coastline, the South Down hills and Brighton itself, all of which helped form a language for the finishes and features.
