LMU Graduate Centre



LMU Graduate Centre

The spectacular Graduate Centre's architectural display.

Location: 166-220 Holloway Road, Islington, London, N7 8DB

Description: The Graduate Student Centre for the London Metropolitan University here is a small building dedicated to the growing graduate population and is placed as a major gateway to the University on Holloway Road.

The building, which opened in March of 2004, promotes postgraduate identity through the provision of facilities to enhance the staff and student experience of graduate educations. It also encourages and facilitates cross-university collaboration at postgraduate level.

The University argues that top quality design can greatly improve the educational experience for the students as they feel valued and enjoy learning in high-quality surroundings.

The ORION building is composed of three intersecting volumes with a distinctive presence on the street and unique interior spaces. The building is clad entirely with embossed coloured stainless steel panels creating a shining and ever-changing surface.
