Brookfield School of Business

Shepheard Epstein Hunter

This project transforms a brownfield site and heritage asset, retaining embodied carbon and creating a new campus for the University of Leicester School of Business. It revives a significant Victorian house (the former home of a founder of the University) and integrates architecture from diverse periods with contemporary interventions, creating a coherent whole which reinforces the brand of the new institution. The site has been restored to public view and access, contributing to the neighbourhood and the city’s proud Victorian and Edwardian heritage once again.
