London Southbank University Hub
The London Southbank University Hub comprises a new 3000sqm library, teaching rooms, lectures theatres, fitness and sports facilities, informal learning spaces and student support facilities.
The building is a refurbished 1970s structure with concrete waffle slabs. These slabs have been exposed in many spaces and now form an integral part of the lighting strategy – in combination with indirect light from pendant luminaires.
The lighting was designed to compliment the architecture with minimal intervention and ensure bright soffits – particularly in areas where daylight is low. It is a considered and understated lighting scheme which seeks to reveal the interior forms and finishes at their optimal brightness.
Architectural design by Wilkinson Eyre.
Lighting designed under contract to BDP.
