The Vijay Patel Building has opened up the campus, connecting the River Soar through to Leicester city centre and provided a thoroughfare for the public.
A bespoke floating staircase in the centre of a five storey atrium has created different spaces on each floor to encourage students from various subject areas to work together and collaborate.
Another key feature is the landscaped green space connecting the heart of the campus down to the riverside, with new paths up to the canal and river edge allowing access and views that never existed before.
A giant 36sqm LED screen at the bottom of the tower block end wall provides a major focal point for students, staff and members of the public.
The Vijay Patel Building brought together all DMU’s Faculty of Arts, Design & Humanities which had been spread across several buildings of different types and size.
The brief was to transform the 1960s block construction that divided the campus into a modern flexible, landmark building to give it a new lease of life with a wow factor.
The project 11,000sqm of refurbishment and 15,000sqm of new build feature varying architectural styles that come together seamlessly to create a modern centrally located landmark building.
