NEW ENGLAND BIOLABS

Entry in an open international ideas competition to devise sketch concepts to a new HQ for New England Biolabs.
A challenging brief encompassed a tight, steeply sloping site, close to the water table, with extensive underground parking requirement's, and height constraints, next to several historical buildings.

The proposed design consisted of 2 stepped terraces, tracing the site's contours, with circulation corridors running between these terraces. Bow string trusses support continuous copper roofs which sweep up & join at the building's centre. Internal terracing at the heart of the building provides ramps to all levels through an internal garden- cum - social space. Planting is also extensively used to the front of the building, losing virtually everything except the roof.
