An innovative, collective approach has paid dividends on this brand new shopping complex featuring a department store, more than 100 retail units and a public roof terrace that enjoys panoramic views of Oxford’s historic skyline from its restaurants, bars and cafés. An exemplar of urban architectural detailing with a level of humanity in terms of materials, textures and space making. There is a certain grandeur that pays respect to Oxford and it has gifted the city of dreaming spires a distinctive breathing space.
