The Clarence Centre for Enterprise and Innovation
A row of Grade II Listed Georgian terraces south of the Thames is home to London South Bank University's Clarence Centre for Enterprise and Innovation.
Intricately and successfully marrying the old and the new, the Centre features office space and support for new start-up companies, as well as a public cafe and gallery.
The Centre provides an exclusive identity to the space but also serves as a gateway to the University quarter with permeable pedestrian links through the site to other parts of the campus.
Our work included the design of both natural and mechanical ventilation where required. A ground source heat pump provides active ground coupling, controlled for both temperature and humidity. This creates a secure environment to conserve the centre's library archive. The building has received BREEAM 'Very Good' under the BREEAM Offices 2008 scheme.
