Cavendish House, Norfolk

Cavendish House is a major refurbishment of an existing building in Norwich city centre, which now houses a new gallery, meeting spaces and supported spaces for fledgling creative businesses. This flagship £2.1 million project for Norwich University of the Arts opened in late 2015, and is already established as a successful showcase for artists and creative businesses. The building is an important element in the University’s continuing programme to develop its higher education and cultural facilities, and our design allows the building to sit more comfortably alongside its neighbours and offer a friendly public presence.
