ECE Architecture was selected by Bouygues to form part of their design team to deliver the Queen Mary Graduate Centre designed by Wilkinson Eyre.
This new building for Queen Mary University of London comprises:
- 200 seat lecture theatre with class curtain walling
- Reading and common rooms within a floating glass box on top floor
- Dedicated graduate study areas
- Large café and foyer
- Student services
- Seminar rooms
- Academic offices
- Computer laboratories
- Roof top terrace
- Landscaped quadrangle and courtyard
Acting as Executive Architect, ECE ensured that the highest design standards were maintained, while working within the constraints associated with the highly-urbanised site in Central London.
ECE were able to overcome various detailed design challenges, such as using the specific brick which used non-standard dimensions. A brick slip system for all brick soffits was utilised to seamlessly transition between vertical and horizontal planes.Share this
