Sam Newson Centre, Boston College

Boston College was established in 1964 and provides further education to students over the age of 14. The College’s Sam Newsome Centre provides a learning facility for Boston College’s Music and Performing Arts students. The three-storey building was originally built in the 1700s and used as a granary and then a seed warehouse. Following years of leasing it from Lincolnshire County Council, Boston College purchased the Grade II listed building in 2016.

The key challenge of modernising the Sam Newsom Centre was to ensure the building remained in keeping with its original appearance while being extensively modernised to improve the teaching space and provide students with the latest technology required for their studies.
