The neuroscience research facility is located on King’s College London’s Denmark Hill campus in South East London. Prior experience on the site includes three other new build research facilities and other projects for science, technology and healthcare. The building allows the college, already one of the largest regional neuroscience centres in the UK, to bring together some of the best researchers in the world with the very latest scientific technologies to advance understanding of neurological diseases. As a key part of a site wide masterplan for the Denmark Hill campus, the project addresses issues of university campus identity, provides improved entrances and principal circulation routes, and sensitively strengthens its relationship to the surrounding facilities and wider neighbourhood.
Designed to provide space for 250 researchers, it aids collaboration between members of the Kings Health Partnership. The facility incorporates the latest tools for imaging physiology, genetics and cell biology. As such, it houses research laboratories, write up spaces, offices and a 100 seat flexible seminar space.
