25 Gordon Street was taken over by UCL in the 1950’s, having been originally built as the Endsleigh Place Hotel in 2895 and converted to a military hospital for Tropical Diseases for the Seamen’s Hospital Society.
The building now accommodates a range of student facilities for the Student’s Union, offices and in addition a range of teaching spaces for the Physics and Mathematics Departments, and our project involves the rationalisation of the entrance area to create a more spacious and welcoming reception, shop and cafe area.
The project was shortlisted for the 2015 AJ Retrofit Awards. The judge’s citation read:
“Sustainability and inclusiveness were the key to this deceptively simple overhaul of a tired reception space, with 99 per cent of waste materials recycled”
