A new sixth form college for the City Of Sunderland College located within the University Campus north of the river Wear and adjacent to a candidate for World Heritage Site - St Peter's Church.


The site itself was small in relation to the space requirements of the college and following discussions with English Heritage careful design of the three storey building was required in order not to impede views of St Peter's Church from Wearmouth bridge.


The building was arranged around a 3 storey atrium space. Externally the terrace areas were designed to take advantage of the impressive views of the River Wear.
