Informed by arts and crafts neighbours and the modernism of Churchill College
Cottrell & Vermeulen Architecture for Churchill College
Contract value: undisclosed
New accommodation for 40 postgraduate students is divided among three houses within the college grounds. There are 30 en-suite student rooms and five self-contained flats and support spaces. The rooms are in clusters of five arranged around six large communal spaces to encourage social interaction. The design was informed by neighbouring arts and crafts houses and the modernism of Churchill College. External materials follow the natural, crafted finishes of both, with handmade red clay tiles, copper roof and board-marked concrete cladding.
