Creative Centre

Client: York St. John University
Builder: Kier Construction | North & Scotland
Architect: Tate+Co

The York St. John Creative Centre is a low energy building which uses low embodied carbon materials as part of a fabric-first approach, and Passivhaus principles to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating. 

Timber has been used throughout to help develop a warm and welcoming atmosphere, while large voids have been punched through the building to bring light and air into different spaces. The building connects to the natural environment through its use of material and a carefully considered relationship to the surrounding landscape. The Creative Centre at YSJU demonstrates that you can provide students with state-of-the-art facilities without sacrificing environmental sustainability.
