Status Planning approved
The new Shared Facilities Hub for the University of Cambridge’s West Cambridge campus will be a dynamic building located at the heart of the campus, providing communal spaces and resources for all of its members as well as outreach opportunities for local community members.
The scheme, which is designed to connect people from different departments of the university, will incorporate teaching and meeting rooms, learning resource areas, catering outlets and offices.
The project is part of the university’s vision to transform West Cambridge into a lively research campus, including the new Cavendish III laboratory which the practice is also designing.
The hub will accommodate the interactions of site users and the demanding scientific processes they are involved in.
In addition to contributing to the wider development of the campus, our proposals for the new facility will provide an inspiring place for working, learning, dining and meeting with friends and colleagues.
