The Florey Building


The Florey Building is a grade II listed hall of residence designed by James Stirling from 1967. Part of the celebrated Red Trilogy it enjoys an international profile well beyond its statutory listed status.

Avanti won an international design competition to upgrade the undergraduate student accommodation whilst providing new conference and event together with enhancements to the grounds and entrances to reflect the architectural significance of the building.

Our scheme which combines repair, remodelling and new build seeks to work with the essential character of the original building whilst sensitively integrating the required new accommodation, including en-suite facilities, and carrying out a comprehensive energy upgrade.  Fundamental to our approach has been the undertaking of a heritage assessment and a conservation led approach which has established a framework to interventions and modifications to the existing structure.
