Our project has turned a former hospital wing that housed a burger bar and a nightclub, into a flexible education space that helps shape a world where young people can challenge research and culture to effect change through public engagement with science, art and technology. The end product includes gallery space, a basement theatre, café, studio and office spaces as well as an external courtyard.
Science Gallery London at King’s College London is located opposite The Shard in London Bridge, and has made its home in the Grade II listed Boland House, part of the historic 18th century Guy’s Hospital.
Our aim was to design a facility that reduced energy use. To achieve this we used efficient technologies including LED lighting, combined heat and power generation and ventilation strategies that would cut CO2 emissions as much as possible.
Future generations can now come here and learn about science and the world around them while seeing what sustainable thinking can achieve.
