Knights Park Campus
 
Haworth Tompkins created a masterplan for the long term redevelopment and refurbishment of Kingston University's Knights Park campus, which is home to Kingston School of Art. The masterplan seeks to provide much needed academic space, share space more equally amongst departments, enhance shared spaces such as the student bar and lecture theatre, expand workshops to reinforce the 'thinking through making' philosophy and improve the public realm of the campus. We are currently developing the first phase of the masterplan, which involves refurbishing and extending a factory-esque 1970s building to provide enhanced design studios, 2D & 3D workshops, dark rooms, film studios and fabrication spaces. The 8500sqm project will radically enhance the quality of facilities available to staff and students across the faculty, and support the University's ambitious target to reduce CO2 by 35% by 2020.
