Hopkins designs £42m research building for Royal Free Hospital

Hopkins Architects has revealed designs for a new research building at the Royal Free Hospital in north London

The £42million Institute of Immunity and Transplantation overlooking Hampstead Green will house around 200 researchers.

It will include laboratories and write-up space for the UCL’s immunity department as well as a patient hotel, new offices for the Royal Free Charity, and covered car parking.

The building has been designed to ‘foster enhanced interaction among researchers, with research facilities and supporting space making the heart of the institute a vibrant international hub for clinical research’.

A planning application is expected to be submitted in late-September, with the scheme due to complete in May 2017.
