University of Roehampton Masterplan London 2008–2012

The masterplan takes its cue from Sir James Wyatt’s C18th Grove House on the site and formalises the campus as a series of precincts and gardens. It incorporates a new library, dance school, sports facilities, student services and accommodation.
