Following the completion of a £34 million investment programme, the School of Art has recently opened the Benzie Building, offering dynamic and unique spaces that are designed to encourage collaborative working across the disciplines.
The new building features an impressive vertical gallery, hybrid studio spaces, state-of-the-art workshops, a café and a communal roof terrace.
Benzie is just one of three buildings that make up the School of Art. Grosvenor Building, the original school of art, embraces the history and traditions that are at the heart of the School and is home to numerous studios and a public gallery. Both buildings are connected by the recently refurbished Chatham Building which has been transformed beyond recognition as part of the investment programme.
The investment programme not only saw the transformation of the School of Art buildings and spaces but refurbishment of our workshops and the purchase of £750,000 of new equipment.
