Text description provided by the architects. As the first new building on the new North Campus science precinct, the Science Research Building provides high technology science research space dedicated to cancer research, regenerative medicine and chemical biology. Two large open lab suites face the river, and are bisected by a three story atrium. Office suites, connected on three levels with a communicating stair, bookend the plan. These three seams of vertical communities within the linear plan enhance collaboration and provide a sense of place for the scientists.

The long, low-rise horizontal massing of the building establishes both a strong campus edge and a new pedestrian thoroughfare connecting the new science precinct with the heart of the historic campus. Deeply recessed horizontal window openings face eastward and frame dramatic views of the River Corrib for all of the open laboratories. A wood and glass curtain wall system faces west along the most public edge, doubling as a thermal buffer for the laboratories, and filtering the harsh glare on the western exposure.
