A seven storey academic office and library building for The School of Slavonic and East European Studies, the building is located on the former unloading bay of the University's Chemistry Department in central London.
Designed to ventilate and cool passively, the building has to cope with the London 'heat island effect' where daytime temperatures are typically 2ºC warmer than rural areas and night time can be up to 6ºC warmer due to heat build up in the fabric of the city being slowly released over time.
