Cardiff and Vale College City Centre Campus

Design: BDP

Location: Cardiff, south Wales, UK

Cardiff City Centre Community Campus

BDP has won the competition to design the 16,000 sq m Cardiff City Centre Community Campus for Cardiff and Vale College. The college is one of the largest in Wales serving Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan and this project brings together many of its activities onto a single campus in the heart of the city.

The design will create a real life environment for skills training. Open and welcoming faculty clusters are set around a public route through the heart of the college. The building’s distinctive wedge shape means interior spaces are connected to south facing terraces with views towards Cardiff Bay. The over-sailing roof is angled to accommodate a 1,850 sq m photovoltaic array, and the fine dining sky restaurant is located under the northernmost tip with views across the city towards the Millennium Stadium.
