The new University of Leicester School of Business Campus sought to bring together the Department of Economics and the School of Management into one consolidated faculty.
The opportunity to relocate to the Brookfield Campus was consistent with the school’s strategy by providing an attractive and unique identity and focus for students and staff within the School of Business, with the Victorian house at Brookfield as the memorable centrepiece of the new campus.
The new business school development removed some of the lower quality Victorian and unsympathetic mid-20th century buildings to create space for a new extension to Brookfield House providing lecture spaces, teaching spaces and academic offices and a new oval lecture theatre and remodelled and restored Brookfield House.
The challenge of the project was to bring together a disparate group of buildings from different ages into one cohesive campus, to provide a strong identity with integrated spaces that flow together.
The communal social learning spaces, supported by cafes, provide social hubs along with the landscaping ties the key main teaching and learning spaces together.
The campus has an elliptical 170 seat lecture theatre, replacing the demolished unsympathetic extension, The former stables and outbuildings have been adapted and refurbished to provide seminar rooms, offices and catering.
