Changing with grace ‘The Herman Miller Factory story’

Time: 16:00 - 16:30

Date: Week 2: 1-5 February


Grimshaw’s Ben Heath discusses the re-purposing of the Farrell/Grimshaw partnership’s Grade II listed Herman Miller Factor for Bath Spa University’s Locksbrook Campus.

The original brief was for a building that would adapt to changing needs of current and future occupiers, encouraging an open community for people within and those around it. Originally completed in 1976, and sitting within the World Heritage Site of Bath, the building now houses the city’s Schools of Art and Design.

The re-purposing maintains the original ethos whilst enhancing the environment within, dramatically improving the energy performance and safeguarding the building’s future for generations to come.
