A five-year project to create a landmark college building in Southend-on-Sea reached completion last week. The £52m South East Essex College of Arts & Technology was conceived by multidisciplinary consultancy KSS Design Group, which handled architecture, interiors, identity and graphics. Interiors feature a distinctive red Pod and organic form dining decks.

Energy savings from the building’s passive heating and cooling system secured an unprecedented increase in funding from the Learning and Skills Council.
