These spaces offered many challenges but Brian and his team have done a good job. I will post some pics below and hopefully Brian will add comments.
Two things that stood out for me was the way the project used appropriate lighting not only in the labs but also in the corridors leading to the labs. I was also impressed by the way any opportunity to make use of what is outside to the benefit of the ambiance of those inside was seized upon.
This room has 3 sets of 2 rows of seats. Each set of 2 rows are at the same height allowing fro the front row of each set to turn and work with the row behind. This requires adequate turning space.
This room has tables with two computers on each. The content of each computer can be displayed centrally.
This is a group study space used by small groups. Note that the layout is simple and there is minimal technology but enough
This is a small courtyard just out side a teaching space which students use to chill out and perhaps discuss topics.
This space was adjacent to some labs and teaching spaces and used as a communal area. Brian had noted that because the furniture is mobile students move the furniture they prefer to the location they prefer. This makes it a dynamic space but annoys the architects because it is not what they planned. Surely they miss the point which is that funcionality is more importnat than form.
