Project Detail

Radha Soami Satsang Beas (RSSB) Building, Leicester

Small Non-Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2016 Winner

The RSSB Building is a modern, bright and peaceful meeting place for the Radha Soami Satsang Beas (RSSB) Science of the Soul (SOS), a philosophical organisation.

The new development provides them with a permanent base to host meetings, seminars, lectures and spiritual teachings. It is sited on the former Leicester College Charles Keene College Annexe site on Abbey Park Street.

Outside there are lawns and gardens with newly planted trees and shrubs to provide attractive, peaceful external areas for their followers to meet. 

Project Overview

Originally the site of a Victorian school, the project saw the demolition of post-war buildings but the retention of the old school building which has been brought back into use alongside the new elements of the scheme.

The new build entrance module and lecture theatre, which can accommodate 750 people, is built over two storeys using local materials and colour palettes, with large expanses of glass providing light and airy circulation spaces with great views outside.

The adjacent Victorian school building has been renovated and finished to a high specification, providing administration and meeting rooms, whilst preserving original features and scale. A glazed walkway joins the old and new.
