A sneak peek at the new student services hub at King's College London

As part of my interim role at King's College London, it has been a pleasure to lead a project to design our new student support services hub.  We open the doors to students next Monday, but below, or here on Flickr, is a chance to see some photos before we open!


The space covers two floors of the South East Wing of the iconic Bush House building.  Bush House is the former home of the BBC World Service, sitting at the heart of London at the point where Strand, Kingsway and Aldwych meet.


My thanks to a truly excellent Bush House Project Team at the university, and to the great people from Overbury, REDS10, and Atelier Works.  Mark Burgess, Niamh Godley, Anna Laverty, Laura Soutter, Frank Rogers, Nathalie Bergvall and Andrea Podesta all deserve a special mention for their key roles in working with us to get this right.  Thanks so much.


All showed great patience when I started work at King’s last September, saying I felt we had to completely reconfigure the 'finalised' – and already part-built – third and fourth floors.  With a shared desire to make the space work as effectively as possible, this great team of people has done us proud. 


The result is a collection of spaces that brings to life our vision of an agile and future-proofed home for our teams – a space which will develop and flex as our services evolve, and which places the student at the heart of the design.


Opening this new space is an excellent way to bring my interim directorship to a close, as I approach my final couple of weeks at King's.
