Sectors : Leisure / Learning

Client : BBC / Leeds College of Music

This unique building houses the regional headquarters of the BBC in the same building as the Leeds College of Music. The two facilities are connected by an atrium with the cafe-bar used by employees and students alike, which helps to create a more balanced environment and keeps the building in use out of term time.

This building has won various awards including the Peoples Award for Architecture in 2003 and provides a 360-seat auditorium, 20,000 sqft of offices and bi-media studios, and the striking architecture acts as a Gateway to the Cultural Quarter of the City.
