We are working with King’s College Students’ Union (KCLSU) to deliver new facilities across the campus. By carrying out detailed research into all the building users’ needs we were able to develop briefs that helped our client secure dedicated space for the Union and funding within the College’s campus expansion.

Such was the success of the briefing process that it is now being presented by the Chief Executive of KCLSU as an ‘exemplar of briefing and design for student unions’.

At Guy’s Campus we have restored the original Georgian volumes of the Grade II* listed Old Guy’s Hospital with contemporary detailing and materials. The West Wing provides activity rooms for sports societies, student use and teaching while work at the East Wing includes a new café server – a bold intervention clad in metal – and the comprehensive refurbishment of Guy’s Bar.
