for details ↓

An exemplar in college design located within the Baltic Business Quarter and strategically positioned between Gateshead town centre and the developing Newcastle Gateshead Quayside. The building comprises nine diverse departments arranged around a dramatic four storey atrium. On the upper two levels, learning resource centres and break out spaces surround the atrium, designed to encourage interaction between staff and students, and to provide an inspirational space in which to learn. The two lower levels have an open ‘street’ design to promote wider use from the local business and residential communities.

Facilities in the street include hair & beauty salons, fitness studio, cafe & bistro, recording studio and a performance / conference venue. Nigel lead the interior design on the project.

"Nigel worked closely with us to create our fantastic Baltic Campus. Without his patience, knowledge and inspiration our work and learning environment would not look as amazing as it does. He was easy to work with and helped us to look outside of the College norm which has created a space that helps us stand apart from the competition."

Jennifer Weaver - Marketing, Gateshead College

"Nigel represents the very best of this very competitive part of the construction industry and provides highly differentiated interior design concepts and customer service. Although still in the early stages of usage, our new main campus is continuing to receive favourable reviews and comments for its function, form and overall image.

Nigel was committed to building a supportive, respectful and client centred relationship; an approach that ensured we were are able to manage and appropriately respond to the complex array of technical, planning and design issues that we faced for the first time. He was totally professional, responsive and able to bring forward an outstanding, creative, timeless and unique interior design solution for the College.
