C4D Building, Cranfield University
The Centre for Competitive Creative Design (C4D) is a new addition to the Cranfield University campus near Milton Keynes, that originates from a former RAF airbase. C4D is a new and unique collaboration between Cranfield University and the University of the Arts London. It brings together two specialist educational institutions to explore creative design and engineering in close relationship with the industry.
Following a competitive interview process Niall McLaughlin Architects were appointed to design the new building for C4D. The building contains a large studio space for students and a number of smaller office and meeting rooms. The main space enjoys a unique view towards the airfield, is naturally lit through a north-light roof, flexible to use and protected from outside noise.
