The fundraising campaign is centred around the opportunities that the masterplan unlocks at Morley College delivering new learning, private study and performance spaces across the campus.
Phase one of the works is underway with a detailed planning consent secured in 2016 for the overall vision. The proposals introduce minimal new build elements, but maximise the potential of the existing college’s character through a series of strategic interventions. A new accessible core opens up spaces over 7 levels, including the original stage fly tower void that now forms a vertical library. From this new stair and lift a concert hall and black box theatre emerge.
The masterplan responds to the brief’s key aspirations of enhanced visibility, usability and accessibility. Funding will enable Morley to deliver this to a new generation of students.
