The Royal Society, London

A comprehensive restoration and refurbishment of a Grade I listed 1827 building by architect John Nash on Carlton House Terrace. Work is being completed in order to extend and enhance the public meeting spaces and update the existing administrative and IT facilities. Structurally these proposals include the installation of a series of large steel 'box frames' to provide sizable openings in the walls at the lower floor levels and the basement vaults. Also, a new structural glass floor is proposed within the atrium to what is known as the 'Albert Speer' staircase which dates back to 1937 at which time the building was the official German Embassy.

Completed 2003.
