A building with very large and beautiful bay windows, and a garden which was reduced in the 1980s through the addition of a nearby nursery school.

The centre is named after Leslie Martin, who founded it in 1967 (it was originally called the Land Use and Built Form Studies Centre).

In 2007 the Department of Architecture vacated the building, and the Martin Centre became incorporated into the main departmental building.

In 2009 the university put the property on the market for an asking price of 3.5 million pounds (around 3.8 million Euros).

In 2011 the building was taken over and converted for use by St Mary's School.
