These images are taken from recent developments for IT open access spaces for students, often known as cluster rooms. Mare Street in the east end of London and then our main Oxford Circus site in the west end.
Mare Street IT teaching room before development work started
These rooms were redecorated, with new flooring LCD screens for teaching and furniture. However there was no budget for new power and data so it was a challenge to get 25 workstations in the room without comprising on the desired layout. When not used for teaching, students may use the space as an open access facility as they can walk through from the dedicated open access space.
