Sammy Ofer Centre opens its doors to the world
Members of the extended LBS community joined the Ofer family and HRH The Princess Royal on 26 September to celebrate the official opening of Sammy Ofer Centre.
The new building has been named the Sammy Ofer Centre in honour of the late Sammy Ofer KBE, a celebrated entrepreneur and philanthropist. Designed by architects, Sheppard Robson, and with 37 seminar rooms, six new lecture theatres, a stunning new library and multiple breakout areas, the new centre will increase the teaching space at LBS by 70%. The famous Grade II-listed building successfully marries a 1920s structure designed in the classical manner, with the latest in architectural design and facilities.
LBS’s dean François Ortalo-Magné said: “The School’s London location puts us at the heart of the world’s financial and business community, and has shaped our character and success since the early 1960s. The Sammy Ofer Centre embodies the quality of the LBS brand and promotes an exciting future for the School.”
