Boardman House, Norfolk

Our new home for Norwich University of the Arts School of Architecture is an impressive refurbishment of a large Grade II listed building in Norwich city centre. A major £3.5 million programme upgrading and remodelling now offers a new home for the University’s expanding architecture programme, as well as state of the art facilities for its media faculty. The building contains a wide range of flexible teaching and production spaces, and contemporary flourishes such as a striking central staircase sit alongside sensitively restored historic features.
