The Sammy Ofer Centre at London Business School shortlisted for AJ100 Building of the Year
8th May 2018
The impressive shortlist features projects by world-leading architects such as Foster + Partners’ Bloomberg HQ, the White Collar Factory by AHMM and KAPSARC by Zaha Hadid Architects to name but a few.
The project includes the refurbishment of Old Marylebone Town Hall’s Council House and Annexe buildings, using the excavated space between these to create a bold new glass and steel entrance and link structure.
Architecturally, the building needed to broadcast the ambition of the client and have a strong urban presence along Marylebone Road. Whilst the majority of the building is dedicated to education – with the facility including six lecture theatres, 32 seminar spaces, a library, offices and a student lounge – the project also needed to accommodate civic and political uses.
The prestigious award recognises the finest building completed by an AJ100-listed practice in the last 12 months. The winner will be announced at the annual AJ100 dinner on Wednesday 13 June.
