St Edmund’s Masterplan I

Client St Edmund's College
Type New build
Use Student accommodation with library
Date 2007

We have been acting for the graduate College since 1999 when we developed an initial Masterplan. This led to four new buildings which effectively doubled the size of the College by 2007. Alongside the new Library with meeting room and gym, the Richard Laws, Brian Heap and Geoffrey Cook Buildings house 139 graduates and undergraduates in a variety of room types.

Throughout, we have aimed to develop an architecture which grows naturally out of the Victorian details of the original establishment and preserves, as much as possible, the friendly, non-institutional character of the College.
