Kingston Hill
 
Haworth Tompkins are designing a 4-storey building for Kingston University, which will provide new teaching and learning facilities for students, and aims to be Passivhaus certified. Located on the Kingston Hill campus, 2 miles north-east of Kingston town centre, the building responds to historic features such as Kenry House, Coombehurst House, a Nineteenth Century Grade II listed retaining wall, and a former stable block. The proposal includes an enterprise hub with student workspace areas, medium format teaching spaces, an energy centre, and two large group teaching rooms. Throughout the building, views towards the woodlands are created, and two teaching spaces have direct access to outdoor teaching spaces set in the landscaped courtyard.
