Anthropology (Study 01)
University of Kent at Canterbury


This is our first study exploring redevelopment of the entrance to the School of Anthropology & Conservation which occupies the northern half of the Marlowe building where we were previously responsible for the refurbishment of the foyer café.

The proposal includes the provision of new office and meeting room space at first floor level, but is primarily about providing multi-use reception space and enhancing the school’s presence by realising the potential of this site on a major route across campus.

Material finishes around an insitu concrete frame currently being considered include: gold anodised aluminium (as used at the foyer café) for the windows and curtain-walling, rough-sawn vertical larch or oak cladding of varying depth for the external fins, left untreated to weather naturally, contrasting the finely finished timber linings of the interior.
