Intended for RIBA Student Members, this tour by Ryder Architecture will explore The Lumen - the brand new flagship office space, designed to cater for the demands of modern business.
Located on the Newcastle Science Central site, The Lumen provides modern workspace for over 1,200 people in the science, technology and knowledge-based sectors. The building is one of the largest urban regeneration projects of its kind in the UK, designed to British Council for Office standards, with an occupancy ratio of one person per eight square metre net of office space.
The building benefits from a generous double-height shared reception and touchdown space, along with a café. It's also designed to BREEAM Excellent standards, and has an EPC rating of A.
Colour and tone have been introduced to give the building richness and depth. The earthy copper tone of the building catches the sunlight, changing its look and feel throughout the day, and providing a dramatic addition to the skyline of Newcastle.
Vehicular access, disabled parking and drop-off points are incorporated into the adjacent public realm. Please provide your own PPE for the tour.
