Oxford Molecular Pathology Institute, Oxfordshire

Demolition of a 1960s extension to the Dunn School of Pathology which was then replaced with a new four-storey building. This building provides additional state of the art laboratory space and is integrated with the current EPA and original Sir William Dunn Building via an existing link bridge with the extension of the atrium of the of the EPA building into the new structure. The façade of the new building includes complicated terracotta solar shading which has been inspired by cell structure imagery, in particular the randomised DNA ladder, which can be read in the terracotta fin layouts. The building has been rated BREEAM 'Excellent'.

Completed 2011.
