Project details

The focal point of the Strand Campus, the King’s Building, accommodating over 3000 students and staff, suffered from chronic congestion and sub standard facilities.

We led a conservation programme of refurbishment and adaptation including the removal of several mezzanine floors to create much improved access and circulation and much needed new facilities.

Following the completion of the South Range Project, the second phase of this masterplan includes the refurbishment of the 1970s iconic brutalist Strand Building.

Brief

  • undertake a programme of work to the 1890s Grade I listed King’s Building, and completed composition for Somerset House – the South Range Project - situated in conservation area
  • develop masterplan proposals to improve identity and realise development potential for the whole of the strand campus and immediate context

Results

  • sensitive and sustainable proposals for both the modern and the listed buildings within this sensitive inner city site
  • provision of imaginative and unparalleled new facilities
