Civic Trust Award

Kendrew Quadrangle, St John's College, Oxford | MJP Architects

The beautifully crafted addition to this historic college in the centre of Oxford consists of students' and fellows' accommodation, as well as teaching rooms and communal facilities including a cafe, an events room, gym and art space. The modern building has a clear layout and has been added with respect and sensitivity to its surrounding listed buildings and historic grounds. The overall construction and detailing reflect an air of elegance and quality for student accommodation which is fully inclusive. At all stages of the development, full and effective consultation was undertaken with Oxford Civic Society, the Oxford Preservation Trust and other representative groups.
