The recently refurbished Roding Building at London Metropolitan University, Holloway Road campus has opened its doors to students.
This is the first ‘test-bed’ project for the University in creating their strategic vision for the future: to bring all of the University’s teaching departments on to one campus for the first time in 170 years – One Campus, One Community (OCOC).
The design concept for the building was to create a new teaching and learning facility – providing a series of flexible and open-plan spaces for the predicted future needs of the University; the building has been refurbished with a focus on spatial arrangement, impact and function, offering modern teaching facilities – IT Suites, Seminar Rooms and communal areas; including the new Highbury Canteen, where both students and staff will benefit from an enhanced refectory that is vibrant and well-located for the convenience of those working or studying in the Roding Building.
Calum Shields, Project Architect at Bond Bryan Architects, explained: “The University has tremendous potential and we were really excited to work with their Estates Team. The brief was to deliver an outstanding facility for students and staff, providing high-quality and flexible learning spaces which respond to different teaching styles and group sizes; the result provides a better quality of space and it will, without a doubt, transform the student, staff and visitor experience at London Met.”
