pdp architecture llp designed and administered on site a new health and beauty block for Totton College. The brief was to provide a new two storey building with a similar appearance to that of an adjacent block but whilst providing a commercial frontage. The concept was then developed into a front of house commercial hair dressing salon with a secondary entrance at the side that provides a back of house student educational area. This then allowed for the building to be sub-divided into two elements so that the front of house could be open in the evenings and at weekends for the public so that the students could get used to working in a commercial salon environment. The first floor was dedicated to the technology department with private class rooms and breakout areas for PC suites, with a sound proof room also included for the college’s own radio station.
