YAPF Tombola and The Beam VAUX Building Tours

Posted on behalf of RIBA North East

Join us for a talk and tour of the former Vaux Brewery site, the gateway to Sunderland city centre.

THE BEAM is the first office building to be developed at VAUX: a ground breaking mixed use development on the site of Sunderland’s historic city centre brewery.

The Beam (Feilden Clegg Bradleyprovides flexible office space in the centre of an emerging cluster creating links and opportunities with business big and small through collaboration, new technologies and data-driven growth. These opportunities exist for tech and non-tech businesses alike.

THE TOMBOLA (Ryder Architecture) is a contextually sensitive three storey, 25,000 sq ft building on the banks of the River Wear, the building combines the openness and light of a modern collaborative environment using timeless materials that reference the area’s industrial heritage.

Embracing tombola’s family culture, the ground floor is dedicated to collaborative activities which promote conversation and innovation, a central atrium with feature Hellerup stair divides the two upper floors, agile workspaces are supported by strategically located private meeting rooms and a diverse range of informal training and presentation suites, all boasting the latest in digital conferencing technology.
