Unpicking additions to uncover the grade I listed medieval fabric
NRAP Architects for Corpus Christi College Cambridge
Contract value: undisclosed
This project involved unpicking additions to uncover the grade I listed medieval fabric and reveal the spatial integrity of Old Hall as well as the reinstatement of a single volume housing William Wilkins’ 1820s staircase. Work included the rationalisation of the cooking arrangements, which are now confined to the lower level, and refurbishment of the upper level of Old Hall to create an open servery. New ducts are concealed within a thickened wall at the end of the servery and a concrete slab that ran across the windows and the arch to New Court has been cut back.
