Harley Davidson Academy

Bromsgrove, Worcestershire

The specialist Academy combining workshops and educational facilities for pupils within the only Harley Davidson Motorcycles (HD) training centre in the UK.

The Bromsgrove campus has a long history in automotive and apprenticeship engineering with a close relationship with the former Rover factory at Longbridge. During 2004/ 05 the College was able to draw on this heritage to forge a public/ private partnership with Harley Davidson Motorcycles to develop a dedicated motorcycle maintenance training facility.

The building is conceived as a singular form sitting on the edge of the campus completing the composition of the campus buildings. Clad in shear stainless steel composite panels on 3 elevations the simplicity of form plays upon the rigours of an engineered approach and the materiality of the machines inside. The single glazed elevation remains opaque giving an air of intrigue whilst animating the space between the buildings.
