This striking entrance is part of a new Media Centre located on Goldsmith Street in the heart of the Nottingham Trent University’s city centre campus. The project includes state of the art resources such as an 85 workstation newsroom – the largest student dedicated newsroom in the UK – three radio studios, two voice-over booths, a six camera TV studio and high speed laser newspaper printing facilities.
The project included a striking new glass atrium style entrance to the existing Chaucer building on a major junction and entry into the University Campus and is set to become a focal point for the University and give a high profile for The Centre for Broadcast Journalism.
This striking new Centre is a fantastic place for our students to learn all the skills they need for the industry, it’s bright, airy and just feels inspiring.

The concept was to create a foil for the existing structure, as a contrast to, but also to complement, the mass of the original building. The entrance atrium mirrors the angular form along Goldsmith Street. The new roof ‘hovers’ over the existing buildings to visually tie the new with the old, whilst the front creates a dramatic canopy over the entrance.
All the colours used within the exterior construction, as well as the interior design are part of an overall ‘brand’ that maber are developing with Nottingham Trent University to establish a strong identity across the city centre campus.
