Replicates the original grade I listed premises in spatial sequence, proportions and key materials
Bennetts Associates for Royal College of Pathologists
Contract value: undisclosed
A new headquarters for a historic institution provides ceremonial and conference spaces, feature staircases, adaptable administrative areas with terraces, and a residential unit for college use. The building replicates the original grade I listed premises in spatial sequence, proportions and key materials. Built on the site of a demolished 1980s structure, it has a clear span, open floorplates from front to back and contrasting north and south facades. Retaining the raft foundation and coffered soffits minimised the volume of concrete used while maximising the thermal mass.
