We are delighted to announce that GWP Architecture have been appointed by the University of Worcester to develop and deliver the refurbishment of the grade II listed Austin House. The £2m scheme will transform the building into the Art House – a collaborative work/teach/gallery space for students studying at the institution.
The 2-storey building was originally constructed in 1938 as a car showroom with large open plan, top lit areas across a split-level. The control and focus of this existing natural light will be key to the scheme’s success as part it’s repurposing into a creative, contemporary, flexible space.
This selection follows another successful appointment at the end of last year by the Aurora Wellbeing Centres in Worksop. To refurbish and extend the grade II listed Worksop Central Library and Museum.
We look forward to working with the University of Worcester on this interesting project.
