This scheme in Beaumont Street in the historic heart of Oxford comprised four main elements: stabilisation of structure, conservation of fabric, sympathetic reordering of existing rooms and the creation of new accommodation to the rear. Two internal, linked courtyards were created, defined by two new wings, one of two stories and the other of four, creating two new ‘stairs’ in the established collegiate tradition. A total of 37 high quality student rooms was created. Our ability to preserve the interior and exterior Georgian, domestic integrity of the properties integrated with a sustainable accommodation solution in the collegiate tradition earned the project a prestigious Oxford Preservation Trust Award in 2008.
