A refurbishment of the world-renowned Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London.
The Bartlett refurbishment included demolishing one floor of the building and adding another two, to give eight storeys in total. The floor-plate of the existing building was increased to almost double the size, 8500 m2 in total. The building façade was stripped back, and a full new façade created using hand-cut bricks.
Central to the design philosophy was opening up the façade of the building to reveal the activity within. This was achieved by placing formal and informal exhibition spaces at ground floor level, inserting a new staircase to open up the building’s circulation, re-orientating the entrance and expressing key spaces to give strategic views of London.
