A Belfast building project has been highly commended at the Grand Final of the RICS Awards in London.
Creativity and design excellence have transformed two unattractive 1960s buildings which are now integrated into the Queen's University campus, with a new pedestrian link and entrance courtyard.
Triple height spaces with bridge links assist internal circulation and connectivity, with atria and voids providing a continuous air path and natural daylight contributing to a low energy design solution.
The constraints of low floor to ceiling heights have been overcome and the materials and detailing of the facades are sympathetic to the setting of neighbouring Victorian buildings.
The scheme successfully links new and old to create a stimulating teaching and learning environment.
