Conde Nast College of Fashion & Design was announced as winner of the Higher Education under £5million AJ Retrofit Award on 17th September.
Condé Nast, the internationally renowned publishing house famous for such titles asVogue, Tatler and House & Garden, commissioned FCBStudios to design a bespoke teaching environment in the heart of London’s Soho. The Condé Nast College of Fashion and Design now offers diplomas in a range of design-based courses.
The design brief was to create a multi-functional fashion and design school that could be adapted for both teaching and event hire. The scheme had to convey a strong sense of the Condé Nast brand while fitting in sympathetically with the Soho streetscape.
