Sainsbury Wellcome Centre, UCL

Sainsbury Wellcome Centre UCL London

The Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour is a state-of-the-art facility for experimental neuroscience research at UCL. Housed within a new building designed by Ian Ritchie Architects and opened by David Sainsbury on 28 April 2016, the centre plays host to 150 scientists and over 50 support staff.

For the centre, Luke Hughes® designed a range of specialist furniture that will allow both group and independent study. Amongst them is our 120º workstation, a new vision of working furniture. In addition, meeting room furniture, dining areas, soft seating areas and reception furniture was all created following the palette and aesthetic leadership of the surrounding architecture.

The project follows other architectural projects funded by the Sainsbury family trusts, including the Sainsbury Laboratory.

The project has since won the 2016 BCI Major Building of the Year Award, the 2016 LEAF Best Facade Design & Engineering Award, and 2016 LEAF Overall Winner Award.
