The Bartlett School of Architecture is one of the world's most renowned and exciting architecture schools, in one of its most inspiring cities. Its name stands for provocative ideas, boundary-pushing research and high-achieving lecturers and students. Its home, however, was failing to provide the quality or quantity of space necessary for the school to flourish and continue to grow.
The refurbishment, designed by Hawkins\Brown, doubles the space available in a modern, light-filled building built on the structural concrete frame of its predecessor. The new central London home of the UCL Bartlett School of Architecture provides facilities for 1,000 staff and students and is the first major project to be completed in the university's programme to upgrade its Bloomsbury campus. The building at 22 Gordon Street, which has undergone extensive renewal, will enable the UCL Bartlett School of Architecture to deliver innovative new programmes for students as well as providing a large exhibition space which will be open to the public.
Tour will be led by Euan Macdonald, Partner at Hawkins\Brown.

“A large number of the Hawkins\Brown team are alumni of the Bartlett and have fond memories of the old Wates House. This was a challenging and hugely rewarding project which has created a building that not only provides a rich mix of academic spaces, but is also better integrated to its environment and welcoming to the public.”
