Providing 25 specialist classrooms and related facilities, the building occupies a sloping corner site, opposite the Main College and abutting a long block of tenements on Hill Street. To maximise the teaching accommodation, a stacked 5-storey classroom block developed as an extension of the tenemental street, the precise concrete gable a contemporary response to the historic use of stone in the area. As the building steps down the hill, the section changes to generate interest of route, creating double volumes and social spaces which integrate with the teaching accommodation to create circulation with a variety of opportunities and experiences.
