This project has won a RIBA National Award 2018.
The 1970s Rank Building completes the courtyard at West Court and has been refaced, refurbished and converted to provide a 160-seat Auditorium with research facilities, teaching spaces and two floors of visitor accommodation.
Eve Waldron Design have been mainly involved with the interior design of the accommodation facilities, which comprise 24 bedrooms and three visitor apartments.
The interior gives a nod to the mid-century, and has been carefully designed to accommodate all the amenities of a 3 - 4 * hotel. It includes floating desks and custom designed wall-to-wall joinery in natural oak, grey mirror and grey marble.
EWD designed, supplied and installed all of the furniture, lighting and window treatments for the accommodation spaces as well as for the Pavilion Bar and other areas of the project.
