eye-kon verified views for the University of Cambridge
The University of Cambridge is building of a new Student Services Centre and replacement examination halls right in the centre of the Old Town. The project entails a combination of demolition, refurbished Grade II listed buildings and a new building, making the verified views key in obtaining planning permission.
eye-kon focussed on addressing all the concerns relative to the conservation of the historical views of the city, working closely with the planning permission officer. The Council requested viewpoints that challenged eye-kon’s team like never before. While retaining all the elements of the original design, eye-kon inserted the model in the original context demonstrating the harmonious combination, respectful of all the restrictions required by the council.
