St Alphege Learning & Teaching Building, University of Winchester
The St Alphege Building is situated within a central location of the King Alfred Campus in Winchester on a steeply sloping site, overlooking a large playing field with views to the South Downs. Providing 10 flexible teaching studios, breakout spaces, and a rooftop extension, the building is connected to an existing 1970’s building by a glazed atrium.
The scheme has been pivotal in re-establishing the University’s frontage to the street and has also focussed on the areas between the buildings which form an important social space. Innovative technology has been used to harness and control passive environmental factors to give more comfortable space to aid teaching, and the use of natural light and ventilation help reduce energy consumption.
