Shining a spotlight on this intricate and exquisite glass roof at Senate House

Cantifix have created a true masterpiece at The University of London, who were looking to re-envisage the use of space within their home in the historic grade II* listed Senate House.

The architects behind the concept, Spacelab, had an awe-inspiring vision in mind for this project.  Therefore Cantifix took the brief and pushed the boundaries when it came to the focal point of the glass roof. This was a completely bespoke design, with every piece of glass specifically engineered to a different size and meticulously crafted – 105 unique panels were fitted in a very precise order to achieve this exceptional overall look.

Charlie Sharman, CEO at Cantifix commented: “Cantifix never sell out of the box. To produce exciting and unique results, every project is accompanied by a full, interactive design service. Because we believe that’s the best way to realise a vision.”

Cantifix worked in partnership with Spacelab on the University of London’s Grade II* Listed Senate House. Spacelab’s mission was to consolidate non-teaching teams from across the organisation (over 250 staff) into one space within the lower ground floor – an underutilised space previously used for storage. Following an in-depth research process Spacelab have completely transformed the space into a light and buzzing workspace that seamlessly marries the building’s rich history with modern interventions.

Spacelab create and deliver innovative and long term solutions through harnessing leading edge technology and putting people at the heart of everything they do.
