The Simon Sainsbury Centre opens

The new Simon Sainsbury Centre at Cambridge Judge Business School opens to students this month. Designed by Stanton Williams, the 5,000m² provides space for the expanding Executive Education programme, together with additional teaching, office, breakout and dining spaces for the School.

The University of Cambridge is a unique environment, both physically and intellectually. Capturing the dynamic between the tradition embodied in the historic context, and the enquiring, innovative, intellectual life of the contemporary University is one of the creative challenges of our project for Cambridge Judge Business School. The project reflects the evolving culture of the University through the changing requirements for learning environments, but also through the physical juxtaposition of old, new and the more recent past: a complex layering of history which embodies the identity of the School whilst expressing its contemporary needs.

Cambridge Judge Business School was founded over 25 years ago on the Grade II listed Old Addenbrooke’s Hospital site in the historic centre of Cambridge. Whilst the original buildings form an important part of the School’s identity and character, they no longer provide sufficient space, or appropriate facilities, for its current and future needs. Stanton Williams were commissioned to enhance, consolidate and expand the School’s facilities on its existing site, bringing together faculty, staff and students in one location so that the School can operate efficiently and support future growth.
