The challenge was to extend and refurbish three 20th century buildings housing the biology, chemistry and physics departments – collectively known as Queen’s Schools – to create a state of the art, fully accessible science faculty. Alongside remodelling to make new teaching spaces and a rooftop pavilion, a ‘critical space’ was inserted into the original buildings to unify the faculty. A triple-height foyer now splices together the three horizontally planned departments with concrete and glass bridges, vitrines and natural history exhibits, a hanging sculpture and views into teaching rooms.
