Trinity Laban Student Facilities, Greenwich

This project for Trinity College of Music was located in King Charles Quarter, one of four Grade 1 listed buildings that make up the former Royal Naval College at Greenwich.

The new student bar, kitchen and social space on the ground floor displaced the existing student union office, post room, rehearsal room booking counter and instrument stores which were reinstated in new accommodation in the basement.

The main design challenge for the project was integrating services routes into the existing building, including a dumb waiter and ventilation ductwork. With the stores being located in the basement and the kitchen and bar being on the ground floor the possibility of this project centred around opening up an existing penetration in the vaulted floor which was the only point where services could rise vertically.

The project also included a new structural glass lobby to the main building entrance, a reception desk and inserted glass and steel screens to enclose Facilities Management offices.
