Event description

Description

Join us for an exclusive opportunity to hear more about this RIBA Award winning building from the architect who designed it.

As part of this series of events showcasing 2019's Award winners, Stanton Williams Architects are giving a tour of Simon Sainsbury Centre, Cambridge Judge Business School.

The Cambridge Judge Business School achieved fame in the 1990s when John Outram converted the original Addenbrookes hospital building in characteristic exuberant style. This extension occupies space behind the original building, on a very constricted site. A large amount of accommodation was required, necessitating very efficient use of space and very careful planning. It is a mark of success that the interiors feel spacious and flowing.

Stanton Williams solution has an aesthetic that is in full contrast to Outram’s, links between the new extension and the existing social hub have been very skilfully handled, enabling one to pass from the rich, colourful and slightly mad world of the hub to one of calm, thoughtfulness and contemplation with simple ease. The change of mood is immediate and very affecting.

Achieving the simplicity and quiet elegance found in the Simon Sainsbury Centre takes a huge amount of effort. Every detail here has been considered and all elements brought together in intersections that are perfect in execution.

This scheme has won a RIBA Regional Award and RIBA National Award.

Thursday 17 October 2019 6.15pm – 7.30pm

This event is supported by the Cambridge Association of Architects and sponsored by Taylor Maxwell
