New Hunt’s House is a building on King's College - Guy's Campus.  Designed by Dyer (in association with AnshenDyer),  it was part of the UK’s largest ever university PFI scheme. The architect's website says that it was, "... Purpose-built for the study of molecular biology..."  and that it, "... contains 23,000m2 of teaching, research and support facilities, including an Information Services Centre for the entire school of Biomedical & Health Sciences."

"Set on a narrow plot, it has been sensitively designed so that its massing and cladding respond to adjacent properties. It is accessible and highly flexible in plan, with services collated into cores at the periphery. The roof level is articulated in a series of towers. New Hunt’s House is equipped to the highest ICT standards. Facilities include specialist ACDP Class 3 laboratories, flexible laboratories, teaching and research suites, lecture theatres, an electron microscopy centre, library (ISC), conference suite and administration facilities."
