On Thursday 7th July our New Studios for the Wimbledon College of Arts won the NLA’s Ashden Price for sustainability.

The zero carbon New Studios achieved the second highest BREEAM score in the world at design stage assessment and provide flexible, high-quality, multi-purpose spaces with natural light and ventilation for a range of courses.

The scheme was praised by the Ashden judging panel for ‘cutting no corners’, with the jury ‘hugely impressed with the attention that had been paid to every aspect of sustainability’ that has ultimately ‘resulted in a building which is not only efficient but also looks good’.

Ashden is a charity that champions and supports the leaders in sustainable energy to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon world.
