Designed to encourage passers by to walk in and start considering a tertiary education, the new Admissions and Recruitment Centre (ARC) creates a welcoming ‘front door ‘ to the university, and exhibits the many courses and research programmes on offer.
As part of the 15 year strategy for the spatial development of its Southwark campus of 20,000 students, AMA determined a likely increase in demand for space by 2020 and presented to the university options for meeting this demand. A complete space audit of all university spaces, and office space guidelines for all academic and administrative activities were developed and a space occupancy survey was completed. Briefs for several large buildings were also prepared.
