Lawray Architects lead regeneration plans of Old College on Aberystwyth’s seafront

14th June 2019 | Blog

Lawray Architects are delighted to have led a team that has  successfully secured planning consents this week for the regeneration of Old College on Aberystwyth’s seafront. The Old College is a Grade 1 listed building of national architectural and cultural importance which will also now benefit from Heritage Lottery funding.

To be part of the team that breathes new life into Old College, and be part of the story of such a prestigious building is a thrilling prospect.

From the outset, Aberystwyth University’s client team have shared their aspirational vision for the building. Once restored, it will provide new cultural, learning, and enterprise facilities for the University, the local community and the wider region, thereby generating  a sustainable asset that will once again be a hub of activity for the benefit of the University and the surrounding area. 

We eagerly look forward to developing the next stages of the project to deliver this vision


I am pleased to have been given the opportunity to comment on the contribution made by Lawray Architects to the recently completed Combined Services Centre in Llandrindod Wells. As lead consultants on a project with three separate stakeholders, their role was always going to be challenging. I was however, very impressed by the professional manner in which they succeeded not only in delivering a quality final product, but also in balancing with skill and patience the competing demands of their three ‘clients ’throughout both the planning and construction phases of the project. From a Dyfed Powys Police perspective, we were very satisfied with the design solutions offered and the ensuing facilities have received complimentary comments from the occupants
