UK-based practice PLP Architecture has unveiled designs for a research facility in central London, UK.

The £600m ($897m) laboratory is being delivered for the UK Centre for Medical Research & Innovation.

The designs were previously drawn by HOK architects, but were modified by PLP following concerns from local planners at Camden Council.

The project, which is a joint collaboration between The Wellcome Trust, Cancer Research UK, Medical Research Council and University College London, is expected to be complete in 2015, according to bdonline.co.uk.

The practice said the designers drew inspiration from existing buildings such as the British Library and St Pancras railway station.
