Bath Spa University’s Locksbrook Campus is a re-purposing of the Farrell/Grimshaw partnership’s factory for Herman Miller. Originally completed in 1976, it now houses the Schools of Art and Design. The building sits within the World Heritage Site of Bath and was listed Grade II in 2013.
The original brief was for a building that would adapt to changing needs of current and future occupiers, encouraging an open community for people within and those around it. The re-purposing maintains the original ethos whilst enhancing the environment within, dramatically improving the energy performance and safeguarding the building’s future.
