The Guntons Atrium, Norwich

A bold intervention transforming a key university building. The Guntons Building is a key building on the Norwich University of the Arts campus. Before our intervention it was dark, dated and difficult to navigate. By inserting a large glazed atrium at the heart of the building we have utterly transformed its appearance and usability. A striking steel staircase now connects departments that were once separated, while daylight is brought deep into the creative studios.
