Laboratories don’t have to look the same.

The Michael Smith Laboratories building houses research facilities for the exploration of genomic science and allows collaboration in all areas of the life sciences, including genetic and molecular biology. The typical floor accommodates highly serviced laboratories and naturally ventilated offices in two blocks that are separated by a skylit atrium. The atrium is the focus of communal life in the building and contains food facilities as well as space for informal interaction between researchers and students.”
