Sheppard Robson shortlisted for BD Architect of the Year 2018 Award
6th March 2018
Sheppard Robson's Sammy Ofer Centre has been shotlisted for a BD Architect of the Year 2018 Award in the higher education category.
The project - for London Business School - 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.
Winners will be announced at the ceremony on 18 April 2018.
