Project: Marlowe Building, University of Kent

Architect: Meld Architecture


Product: Linear Rib


This project began as a brief, set for the University of Kent MArch students to look at ways of enhancing the area of campus in and around the Marlowe Building, home to the Kent School of Architecture and the School of Anthropology. Fourth year student Pier-Luigi del Renzio’s proposal identified the opportunity for their foyer space to open out and connect with a wider university community, recognising the potential of the school’s prominent siting on campus.


Pier-Luigi, working in conjunction with Meld Architecture, turned to the Linear wall and ceiling ribs in natural birch to enhance the internal space aesthetically and acoustically. The result is a highly appealing space.
