Extension to an Oxford college to provide 100 en suite rooms as well as seminar rooms, a café, a governing body room and a multi-purpose auditorium

The extension consists of five buildings arranged around a new quad, shared with the neighbouring Lutyens-designed Campion Hall.

A Corten and glass bridge that springs over the protected medieval city wall connects the new development directly with the Chapel Quad in the existing college.

The tallest of the new buildings, which is intended to visually enclose the three-sided Chapel Quad, includes a modern, third tower for the college - the other two mark the dining hall and entrance.

The dual-aspect governing-body room in this building symbolically ties the extension to the existing fabric of the college with bay windows that give views into both the new and old quads.
