Center for Novel Therapeutics

The Center for Novel Therapeutics (CNT) is a beautiful research laboratory with a redefining open/shared-space concept aimed at increasing academic and industry research collaborations.

The project was designed by inverting the traditional laboratory design—pushing the laboratories to the outside of the building, creating views to the campus and introducing generous amounts of daylight into the space.

The layout encourages chance encounters through research wings wrapping around a central atrium that creates visual and physical synergies between academic and private researchers. The CNT is LEED Gold certified.
