Case Studies

University of Leicester Centre for Medicine

The Project
Spanning a total of 6 storeys, the new £42 million Centre for Medicine at Leicester University is home to academics, students and researchers. It is a centre for excellence in both teaching and technological resources; and bears the title of the largest Passivhaus building in the UK. As well as exceptional research facilities; the building offers a variety of collaborative and flexible working spaces to enhance user experience and learning. We worked with the University to design teaching areas, breakout spaces, café areas and offices across 5 floors of the building; creating an interactive space for students and staff.
Our Solution

The Centre for Medicine is a light and airy space, built around 2 main atriums. Our Designers and Space Planners worked closely with the Estates and Facilities team to understand their wants and requirements for each area, before proposing a range of layouts and options. The breakout and collaborative working areas, in particular; required a significant amount of thought and intricate planning in terms of use of the available space, and their functionality. We incorporated a combination of booths, desks and sofas to provide variety and choice for the users.
