BIC, Wellcome Genome Campus – Fairhursts Design Studio
Martine’s first visit to this architectural showcase near Cambridge was to cover Fairhursts new laboratory and offices at the southern edge of the campus. Wellcome Genome are patrons of some extremely fine modern buildings set in the stunning landscaped parkland of Hinxton Hall.
BIC is a twin facility with large research labs on one side of a glazed bridge link and office and meeting spaces on the other. There was a staggered completion of each wing over a twelve month period, and the compete site was ready to shoot in summer 2016 with Martine needing a day and half to fully get across both sides of the project.
