It is also an interface between the public and the university. The building’s position within the square  creates a separation between the semi-private space, the residential functions and the pedestrian link route.

Many publicly accessible buildings in the city of Plymouth are highlighted with some copper cladding. We have used this to signal the public facing nature of the cafe within the University Campus.
