Built

A dynamic new landmark Teaching & Learning Centre for Birkbeck, University of London in a prominent location on London’s Euston Road.
NEW LONDON AWARDS 2021

NEW LONDON AWARDS 2021

Winner in the LEARNING category
This new Learning Centre retains and repairs the car showroom which had sat on the site for the past century, not only breathing new life into the existing structure through the insertion and addition of 21st Century teaching spaces, but giving Birkbeck a prominent presence on Euston Road for the first time. The timber formed, copper clad, twisted lecture theatre precariously balanced above, both signals the building from afar and greatly expands student capacity. Whilst ground floor social learning spaces carve out views into the basement that invite the curiosity of the passer-by through ample glazed shop windows.
