Extending into no.15 Bedford Square, the Paul Mellon Centre sought to expand and improve facilities for their cultural events programme and for the Yale-in-London students and staff. Our completed works have provided new study rooms, seminar rooms, library and archive spaces, a reception area, and catering kitchen – organised into a neat circulatory system that involves lateral connections between nos.15 and 16. Through carefully understanding the specific ways in which this academic institution operates we designed bespoke furniture and carefully integrated lighting, IT and services to sit naturally within each of the Grade 1 Listed interiors, while playfully composing the way they interconnect as an ensemble of spaces.
