Bond Bryan Architects receive planning permission for its new Student and Adminstration Services Building 

Newcastle University’s new £22 million Student and Administration Services Building, on Barras Bridge in the city centre, has received planning permission from Newcastle City Council and will be built to strict environmental guidelines. The 8000 square metre building, designed by one of the education sector’s leading architectural practices Bond Bryan is on a prominent gap site opposite St. Thomas’s Green and will become the new ‘front door’ for the University. It will provide threshold space for visitor and student access, a combination of open plan offices, meeting rooms and support areas. Bond Bryan were appointed after a design competition between a number of national practices, beating off the likes of Terry Farrell and Partners, Faulkner Brown, DEGW, Howarth Lichfield and the Howe Partnership. Bond Bryan Director Geoff Halliwell stresses: “The clarity of the conceptual design and considered environmental response has remained throughout the process to date. The building represents an imposing yet respectful solution for the site, elegant in its simplicity of form and use of glass and natural sandstone, enhanced by the full height brise soleil to its frontage that masks a more complex, deep plan footprint behind.”
