With its student population rapidly increasing, University College London (UCL) needed more space on its Bloomsbury campus. The solution – Re-organise 1-19 Torrington Place.
Structure Tone were appointed to create bespoke learning environments through impactful design and quality that reflects the Universities reputation for excellence and innovation.
Working with the University’s Design Team, Structure Tone helped develop a Restacking Scheme to renovate Level 10, refurbish the Ground floor and the Basement, thus providing:
New receptions, lecture theatres, various specialist-teaching spaces and breakout / social areas – all while normal operations continued on the floors above.
To solve that challenge, we organised the Project into a detailed four-phase plan:
The entire effort was completed before the beginning of new academic term, allowing the University to get settled before classes resumed. The fantastic new spaces now offer 542 seats of specialist teaching space and 10 new learning and social spaces, as well as a new DDA lift, security speed gates and a striking reception desks.

"Structure Tone has been fantastic to work with on the Havas Kings Cross project.
They are our partners in every sense of the word. The timelines and ask were both tight and demanding, but StructureTone took it on and have done a fantastic job in a very short amount of time.
We’re very proud of our building, which has genuinely added another 20% in confidence to every conversation we’ve had and decision we’ve taken since moving in. Great job, well done." - Paul Ward, Group Chief Operating Officer, Havas Group
