Located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site at Maritime Greenwich and opposite Hawksmoor’s St Alfege, the University of Greenwich’s Stockwell Street building,provides the main university library and the departments of Architecture, Landscape and Arts. The overall aim of the development was to provide a modern, inspiring environment for students studying architecture and landscape, and those joining the new Department of Creative Professions and Digital Arts.
The Syntegra Group were engaged by our client Fanshawe LLP to provide specialist energy auditing and certification for the development. As the project presented a number of unique challenges, our team worked closely with our clients to achieve the required standards of energy efficiency and consumption.
After completion, the project was one of six UK buildings to be shortlisted for the 2015 RIBA Stirling Prize for architecture.
The building’s design caused Jay Merrick of The Independent to state that “Heneghan Peng gave this building a skilfully modulated form and facades, decreasing its sense of mass, and fitting it into its urban context.”
