Design Engine John Payne Oxford Brookes University

Completed Project: John Payne Building, OBU

1 November 2009

The new John Payne Building at Oxford Brookes University Headington Campus is complete, representing the first phase of the masterplan for the campus. The £4m 15,000sqft facility accommodates the relocated architectural workshop and material testing laboratory from buildings due for demolition, plus two floors of office space above. The building has been designed as a foil for the new development, and is detailed with crisp black cladding with strategic accent colour referenced from the machinery inside the technical areas.
