This new horticultural sciences centre in Surrey in southern England was designed to be a research hub with laboratories, and exhibition and events areas open to the public, a large library and herbarium. According to the WilkinsonEyre architects the aim is “to inspire future generations of horticulturists to create a greener future in the UK”. Erected in the middle of a huge scientific and experimental garden, the widely glazed building was designed to visually connect its interior with the outside. The project was a large one and optimising its internal acoustics was also a substantial challenge. In the study rooms, specially produced Stereo panels were fixed directly to the ceiling, making a rainbow of colours from the outside environment. To achieve this, Texaa staff searched through the firm’s old colour catalogues to put together a range of fifteen colours to meet the architects’ requirements. Sober colour choices were made for the learning studios and staff offices. Here, long Stereo baffles, also specially made, are perfectly lined up between the undersides of the structural beams supporting the ceilings, or suspended in islands with patterns of regularly distanced gaps, which house the lighting.
