Lowestoft College Master Plan
Scope: Master Planning
Client: Lowestoft College Corporation
OWL expanded upon a strategic development plan (by others) to form a Visual Design Brief that examined phasing, circulation and appearance in much greater detail. A key aim of the study was to project a forward-looking image of the College and create a campus that encouraged interaction. A number of distinct zones were identified across the site reflecting user requirements and included Public, Business, Academic and Vocational Zones. The proposals essentially invert the existing campus and introduce a new main access road into a formal forecourt or Quad. The creation of communal space both internally and externally is encouraged and modulation of the building fabric externally helps to define the character of outside space.
