New space developments 2015, Aston Webb C Block

Aston Webb C Block redevelopment. A flagship lecture theatre with technology enabled breakout tables, an informal study space for students, comprising a study lounge, small IT cluster room, quiet study room and laptop area, all scheduled for completion in August 2015.

Associated Architects have produced these renders. The breakout spaces have been re-worked since my start at Birmingham and the student study lounge has been completely redesigned to support a variety of informal working spaces.

These beautiful oak tables below were a key feature that I wanted to include the space, now proving very popular with students, wide enough for individual work

These high group study tables are also proving a popular workspace, with the ‘Airflake’ curtain that separates the two tables. Power modules for mobile devices also installed for students, both 13amp and USB sockets

This photograph shows the small IT room. The images for the vinyl manifestation were taken from the entrance to the Aston Webb Great Hall and features the ‘Worthies’, including Shakespeare, Da Vinci, Newton, etc.
