New St Martins Opens

Central St Martins university of arts previously in Charing Cross Rd officially opened the new campus in Kings Cross last night. The £200 million project includes the transformation of the grade II Victorian Granary buildings. The three-storey building is based around an internal street, naturally lit through a translucent roof and consists of 10 acres of floor space.
From Kings Cross and St Pancras stations a new path way with funky lighting leads the way into the university.
Previous students of Central St Martins have included: Colin Firth, Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen and Yinka Shonibare. Hang around here to see who the new stars coming out of this university will be.
