Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Building, Nottingham
Owned by Nottingham City Council and located adjacent to the University of Nottingham, the science park contains a series of office buildings designed by various well known architects; we have been retained by the city council to plan the final phase of the park. In addition to the office space the building also contains a focal café and conferencing hub for the park. There is also undercroft parking for 80 cars.
The hub space contains a prominently positioned café, meeting rooms and outdoor seating located on the pedestrian route between the science park and the nearby tram stop. The hub space is celebrated visually with a double height glazed curtain wall under a large cantilever of office space which serves as a protective canopy.
The façade is a rhythmic pattern of modules in a combination of full height glazed elements and high quality dark grey cladding panels with featured vertical seams, at car park level a complementary gold coloured open mesh screening system is used. This approach makes a powerful contrast with the brightly coloured buildings elsewhere on the site.
