Bayswater College

The creation of a new college building and learning environment in central London. The retrofit of an existing 5 storey mid-century building to create a new inspirational soul for both domestic and international students alike.

TCA have been engaged in this further education project for a new college in Westminster. The client was aware of our work with young people and creating spaces for young communities and as a result there was a clear strategic benefit in appointing us to work on this important project.

The proposal is based in an existing 1950’s building of circa 9000sqft and needed extensive refurbishment to both reflect the College ethos and purpose made learning spaces, but also to overhaul the external facades that have not been upgraded since its completion more than 60 years ago. We aim to bring the building back to life, incorporating original detailing to give character but place this in a contemporary learning environment for a wide range of student courses.
