Video: Sheppard Robson's engineering laboratory for the University of Liverpool

  • Comment

Sheppard Robson has completed this ‘luminous chameleon’ for the University of Liverpool

The building ‘floats’ on top of an existing 1960s block and features a fritted glass facade fitted with LED lighting which can change on demand.

Sitting south of Liverpool’s iconic brutalist Metropolitan Cathedral, the two-storey ‘Active Learning Lab’ houses an engineering laboratory and is part of a larger £19 million scheme whichincludes the refurbishment of four existing buildings and a new entrance foyer - a fully glazed, three-storey extension to the original 1892 red brick Alfred Waterhouse-designed Victorian buildings..

The project has been designed alongside Arup Lighting and officially complete last month (June 2009).
