Inskip + Jenkins scoops £200m King's College plan

  • Comment

Peter Inskip + Peter Jenkins Architects has beaten John McAslan and Partners, Llewelyn-Davies and Shepheard Epstein Hunter to be appointed campus architect for the Strand Campus of King's College in London.The job represents about £200 million of work in refurbishment and new-build and means the practice will implement a masterplan it drew up last August.

The masterplan, which will take between five and 10 years to carry out, includes the restoration of spaces within Sir Robert Smirke's Grade I-listed foundation building, a new staff common room, new dining facilities, lecture theatres, computer suites and ancillary teaching and research accommodation. Inskip + Jenkins will also aim to create new links to Somerset House, where the practice has worked on the Gilbert Collection.

Another major feature will be the reopening of the medieval Strand Lane to allow a link from Temple Underground Station and the Embankment to the Strand and a new pedestrianised 'place' to be created between King's College, St Mary-le-Strand and Somerset House, after traffic rerouting in 2004.

Yet another feature will be the rebuilding of a Quadrangle structure to provide for new staff offices, laboratory and research facilities and further laboratory spaces beneath the South Court.
