Situated at the heart of LSE’s campus, on Houghton Street and Clare Market, the 13-storey building is the largest building commissioned in LSE’s history. A “bold and beautiful design,” commented the architects, it is also the highest building on campus, offering spectacular views across London’s skyline. Tracy Meller, partner and architect at Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners said, “The Centre Building project presented us with a unique opportunity to work with the LSE to design a building which really reflects the values of the school, creating innovative and inspirational spaces for students and staff, in which to learn, socialise, study and collaborate.” She added: “Our proposals went beyond the original brief aspirations, placing a new public square at the heart of the campus to improve wayfinding and connectivity, and

HLM’s Swanley regeneration scheme given the go-ahead


A major regeneration scheme designed by HLM Architects, aimed at “revitalising” Swanley Square Shopping Centre in Kent, with new retail, community and residential accommodation including Private Rented Sector homes, has been given the green light.

including retail, restaurants, shops, new community multi-purpose space, and a new multi-storey car park.

Embracing sustainable design principles from the offset the BREEAM Outstanding building provides good daylighting and natural ventilation to over 70 per cent of the accommodation, creating workspaces which enhance the wellbeing of its occupants, in addition it reduces embodied carbon by 30 per cent, harvests rainwater and utilises a biomass boiler and PVs as part of its renewable energy strategy.” The Centre Building hosts a number of academic departments, more than a dozen seminar rooms, hundreds of study spaces and four lecture theatres, including an innovative ‘LSE style theatre’ designed to allow for both traditional style teaching and collaborative group work. A new LSE Alumni Centre provides a custom-designed space for alumni visiting their campus, while three roof terraces and a cafe provide new areas for students and staff to meet and socialise. To facilitate interaction, a public square has been placed at the heart of the building, creating a new focal point for students and staff to interact while linking Houghton Street to the Library Plaza and connecting Lincoln’s Inn Fields on the western edge of


the campus to the LSE buildings to the east. The building also features a dramatic ‘Academic Stair’. Moving diagonally across the facade of the building in a series of double height spaces, the staircase was designed to encourage dialogue between departments, institutes and research centres and to provide additional informal areas for students and staff to interact. The Centre Building has achieved a BREEAM Outstanding rating.


Kent” will “bring new life and vibrancy to the town,” said HLM, with the introduction of seven new buildings varying in height from three to 11-storeys, replacing a large area of grade parking. The scheme is one of four mixed-use regeneration projects led by U+I that will deliver over 1,000 new rental homes in the southeast across locations in Ashford, Maidstone, Swanley and Woking; each aimed at providing affordable retail and residential units to enhance local communities and celebrate the character and history of the local areas. Detailed planning for the phased development of the scheme is now underway with construction expected to commence in 2020.
