Approach

The new shared analytical research facility serves the departments of Physics and Chemistry, and other research faculties on the campus of University of Warwick.


With interaction between science disciplines at the heart of the brief, the proposals consist of four floors of laboratory and office space, below which sits a double height laboratory space for high spec research instrumentation.  


The building links the plaza at ground level to the existing principal campus thoroughfare at the upper levels with a new main entrance, reception and light, attractive concourse space which will act as the social hub of the research building. 


The building assists the University's expansion ambitions on a prominent site with a high quality sustainable design based on a striking architectural expression for the analytical instrumentation suite to reflect the cutting edge science being carried out within.
