Peterborough Regional College required us to use cost effective methods to create an inspiring and
uplifting Art and Brickwork Workshop building that is also accessible to students with learning
difficulties and disabilities.
The building consists of two high blocks, and one low block to provide accessibility to building users, the arrangement of these giving the building its distinct form. We focused our design concept on the three key features of Structure, Colour and Light in order to address the need for the building to inspire its students.
A portal steel frame was used as a cost effective structural solution to divide the building into two
high blocks and one low entrance block, giving the building its distinct form.
We used the College’s corporate colours on the building facade to give it a distinct image, and used
colour to identify it from other buildings within the College campus. In order to make the most of natural daylight and soften the appearance of the design, the Fisher Building makes use of glazing and solar shading to control the strength of light.
