On The Drawing Board
Sustainable Digital Media Centre
This project was started originally when Ivan Jordan was employed by Barrie Simons Associates. At its inception, a feasibility study was conducted, part-funded by the Technology Strategy Board, that focused on developing technical designs for a carbon neutral digital media centre.
Our client is an arts centre, constrained by their existing capacity, with a strong desire to increase their accessibility and presence in the city centre. The media centre is part of the arts centre: a teaching hub that provides professional facilities for local digital artists, animators and filmmakers.
The latest phase of the project is focused on re-building the media centre. The effect of the building on its area is profound, and we consider that any changes that are made should be done so with full regard to context and potential in that part of Exeter City and beyond.
