Heneghan Peng submit plans for University of Greenwich buildings


Heneghan Peng has submitted the planning application for The University of Greenwich’s new Campus Library and School of Architecture & Construction. The new building will allow more of the university’s activities to be based in Greenwich, near the main part of its campus in the Old Royal Naval College. The site, which is currently derelict, is within an urban fabric of terraced building which suggested a fine-grained approach. The grain of narrow and wide bands structure the site, narrow bands containing courtyards, service and cores, wide bands provide the teaching and learning spaces. The grain is further drawn through to the street to create a permeable streetscape.

The library is located to the north establishing a connection to the main university campus in the Old Royal Naval College. Cafe and exhibition spaces line Stockwell Street whilst at the corner opposite Hawksmoor’s St. Alfege Church, a slight setback creates a threshold, an entrance to the building and a pause in the street from which to turn with the church as its focus.
