J‌oseph Bank Laboratories

The Joseph Banks Laboratories and Minster House are a purpose-built science facility, developed by a collaborative team including teaching and research staff, estates and ICT professionals, architects and engineers.

Joseph Banks Labs

The design integrates research, teaching and social space into a single, connected learning landscape. Undergraduates, postgraduates and staff will share formal and informal spaces distributed throughout the facilities.

The building’s simple, linear form facilitates navigation and excellent access to natural light throughout. A learning corridor runs through the building on all three axes, connecting the entrance with the teaching spaces, laboratories, offices and the new social learning spaces on each level.

Sited to the southwest of the existing University campus, the new facilities face onto a large green quadrangle with mature trees. New footpaths, seating and cycle stores will enhance this already pleasant space.
