A combination of limestone columns and concrete bands surrounds the exterior of the building, which provides scientific research facilities in the botanic gardens of Cambridge University.
Glass-fronted laboratories allow scientists to look out onto a courtyard at the centre of the building, beyond a double-height corridor filled with informal meeting areas.
