Oxford Preservation Trust Award, New Building

Pembroke College, Oxford | BGS Architects

"Just as 100 years ago Hertford College tied together its Old and New Quads with the Bridge of Sighs, BGS has connected old and new with a Corten and glass bridge. Engineered by Price & Myers, the counterweighted bridge springs over the protected medieval city wall to connect the new development directly with the Chapel Quad. While the bridge will be a point of interest for students, it also allows Pembroke to maintain a single entrance though its porter’s lodge, ensuring that the extension will function as an integrated part of this close-knit community."
