The Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children brings together pioneering research and world-leading clinical care to drive new tests, treatments and cures for children with rare and complex diseases.
The new outpatients and research building facilitates and promotes the translation of rare disease research into tangible therapies and treatments by bringing together Great Ormond Street Hospital and UCL's expertise into one of the world's leading centres for development of new therapies for children with rare diseases.
Designed by award-winning architects Stanton Williams, the 13,000m² building comprises consulting and treatment rooms, new offices, specialist laboratories and support areas for up to 500 clinical and research staff.
The building is located in the Bloomsbury conservation area opposite Coram's Fields and this sensitive location required careful consideration into the building massing, design and selection of materials to suit the characteristics of the conservation area, as well as the access and servicing strategy.
