Level 1, the Breakout Rooms

Overview

This level includes the "breakout" rooms, all of which are accessed from the Level 1 Passage. As the passage is blocked by staff-only rooms across the north side of the building, we consider this passage in two sections - The Level 1 East and West passages.

The East Passage serves Harris Room 2 and the Ochil Suite, whilst the West Passage serves Harris Room 1 and the Carrick Suite.

Layout

You reach Level 1 via the Main Stairs, facing west. There are three pillars in the area between the stairs and the escalators, in front of you. There's a window wall to your left (south).

The escalators are on the west side of this space with the one to/from Level 0 north of that to/from higher levels. There's a pillar in this space, between the tops of the escalators.

There's a water cooler and various obstacles in front of the right-hand (north) wall. There's a large pillar in the middle of this space, we suggest you go to your left of this before carrying on (west) into the passage.

The Level 1 East Passage, Going Anti-Clockwise

Turning right (180 degrees, east) from the top of the stairs, you pass a wooden ledge on your right then go through a set of push double doors into the passage.
