As part of our ongoing masterplan for the Law Society campus and following a feasibility study on the existing Education Centre, we designed a scheme that transformed the carpark at lower ground floor level into a range of multifunctional education spaces. At the main entrance level, we also designed a complete reorganisation of the ground floor foyer into a new reception area, with a small café to create a vibrant gathering and information space within the overall educational campus of the society.
The new suite of flexible multipurpose education rooms were provided around a generous circulation spine, that also serves as a gallery space. Our concept for the main foyer was to create an interactive ‘public room’ in which members, staff, students, and the public could meet. The café was relocated to the street entrance allowing the reception and information desk to be combined in the main central location. Our latest project involved the complete overhaul of the main lecture room to provide 260 tiered seats within a new interior space that reflected the Law Societies new identity. All services were carefully integrated within the interior design to maintain clean minimal lines, mechanical ventilation is integrated into the tiers and ceiling, with lighting concealed in the folded ceiling planes.
