Work has started on the dramatic remodelling of LSE’s New Academic Building to convert the existing building into a flexible teaching facility at 24 Kingsway in London. Central to the scheme are three new insertions - the atrium, the roof pavilion and the reinterpreted forecourt – which collectively generate an environment that encourages learning, social interaction and public engagement. The forecourt embraces the continuity of the open setback space of this area of Lincoln’s Inn Fields and relates directly to the public realm. The triple-height atrium fosters social interaction and unifies all the teaching spaces. The roof pavilion, with its stunning views, accommodates executive meeting rooms and a function suite.
