ANSWER TO LAST MONTH'S GUESS WHERE COMPETITION

Rubes Hiles was right: it was the rear of the Sutherland Building, Northumbria University, by Glasgow-based practice Page\Park.

The studios have been purpose-built specifically for Northumbria’s Architecture programmes, with a design tailored for how the University’s students and staff work.

Page\Park are specialists in the creative re-use and restoration of buildings. This historic building conversion has been designed with light, sight and greenery in mind. It is an environmentally-minded extension with outdoor space and courtyards.

The studios combine digital and traditional methods of communicating work. New touch screens mean students and staff can draw directly on screen and email content to each other.

The building has a carbon-neutral design with an under-reliance on mechanics. It is naturally ventilated and has entirely recycled flooring and chairs, a green roof and a green wall with bird boxes and bat boxes to encourage wildlife.

Well worth a visit.
