Go-ahead for £45 million King's College London Neuroscience Institute

  • 1 Comment

[FIRST LOOK] Devereux Architects, working with Allies and Morrison, has won the green light for this £45 million Neuroscience research facility for King’s College London in South East London

The new 8,400m² building at the college’s Denmark Hill campus will house the Wohl Neuroscience Institute, and provide enough space for 250 researchers.

The facility will incorporate the ‘latest tools’ for imaging physiology, genetics and cell biology and includes homes for research laboratories, write-up spaces, offices and a 100-seat flexible seminar space. 

The more ‘heavily serviced’ elements of the building, such as the laboratories, are accommodated in a linear block running along the western edge of the site, while the write-up spaces are arranged along the ‘open face’ of the site fronting a neighbouring residential street.

Devereux Architects and Allies and Morrison Architects have collaborated on a number of major projects in recent years, such as the new clinical research building for the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in Central London.

The pair are also working on the £3 billion Addenbrookes masterplan, for the Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

The new King’s College London facility, which is being funded by the Higher Education Funding Council England, Science Research Investment Fund and private donations is due to complete in July 2012.
