Surface to Air Architects are known for design excellence in the education and residential sectors. We are working on a range of projects - offering both consultancy and design services in the UK from £250k to £200 million. The studio offers design quality, unique client interaction skills and excellent project delivery.
The studio approaches every project with an open mind and a blank sheet of paper. Our design process begins with listening to the client; through this we establish the clients vision, objectives and requirements (the brief), and then develop a building solution. We believe that the design process should be created from the 'inside-out' and be an enjoyable experience for our clients.
Global Academy UTC
Surface to Air Architects have been appointed as the architects for the new Global Academy University Technical College.
The Global Group is one of the UK’s biggest names in Radio and media - owning Capital Radio, Smooth FM, XFM, Gold, LBC and Heart.
The project will form part of the Old Vinyl Factory masterplan in Hayes, Hillingdon. A regeneration project - being put into action by award winning developers Cathedral Group - surrounding the former site of the EMI vinyl record factory. The masterplan encourages high design and fresh thinking: characteristics our new scheme for Global UTC emulates in it’s design.
State of the art modular construction and media and lighting integrated façades are just some of the contemporary architectural features of Global UTC. Watch this space for more insight as the project develops.
