Blueprint Design Awards Finalist

Two buildings designed by Abell Nepp for the world-renowned genomics and biodata campus, the Wellcome Genome Campus in Hinxton, Cambridgeshire, have been selected as finalists in Blueprint Magazine's 2016 Design Awards.

The Conference Centre project has been nominated in the Best Public-Use Building (Privately Funded) and Best Interior Project (Work) categories. The £10.5 million project encloses the heritage Kitchen Garden, and provides new breakout, exhibition and catering facilities to the Grade II* Hinxton Hall complex located in the Conservation Area of the campus.

The £5 million Shared Facilities Collaboration Hub, replaces the original 1990's facility, maintaining only the roof and structure, providing new cafe, library, meeting rooms and classroom for the campus.
