Part of the wider development of the University’s Oxstalls Campus.
Race worked closely with Austin Smith Lord ensuring good occupancy numbers and to ensure that we were able to adapt our seating to a sloping floor. Part of these discussions related to having good sight lines for the students and recent visits have shown that this exciting seating arrangement works well for all those attending.
From the outset the Architect and University were interested in having a collaborative working/teaching environment. The product specified is Race Furniture’s Connect seating, an award winning seating system adopted by leading universities to facilitate new ways of learning. Connect introduces an innovative design for learning spaces, combining the need for collaborative group work with teacher focus lectures. The layout lets the teacher circulate freely and interact effectively with students.
