The University of Westminster commissioned Rock Townsend to relocate their Psychology Department into the University’s New Cavendish Street campus.Their brief was for a department that felt completely different to the rest of the University, which held its own identity and ‘brand’.
RT designed a new layout for the department, arranging perimeter offices with glazed partitions around a central area. The individual offices allow for an appropriate level of privacy between staff members and quiet space where students can work with their tutors. The central space provides a dedicated social learning area, encouraging greater interaction and collaboration between students and staff.
