ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2015

Project Detail

The Hub and Arts Academy, Loughborough College

Large Non-Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2015 Finalist

Loughborough College’s new Hub and Arts Academy has been purpose built for the teaching of music, performing arts, design, art and media courses.

At the heart of the campus, it includes a 250 capacity theatre, with recording, rehearsal and editing suites plus dining facilities and a learning resource centre.

The curved facade of the hub building uses coloured bands of bricks to create a vibrant backdrop to what will be a landscaped courtyard.

Project Overview

The new Hub and Arts Academy provides a welcoming frontage to the College from Loughborough town centre.
 The building was designed to face the town, rather than the University.

A tree lined pedestrian pathway tapers towards 
the College’s entrance and is complemented by landscaping that incorporates native species of plants and trees.

The most energy efficient building on campus, the project achieved a BREEAM rating of Excellent. More than 96 per cent of material spend was sourced within 40 miles of the site.

It has also been designed to allow for the building’s future expansion and both the cafe and the restaurant are exceeding the turnover targets set, providing the College with an income stream.
