Academic Wing, Wolfson College, Oxford

Wolfson College is a Grade II listed graduate college built in 1970. In 2009, the practice was commissioned to design a new Academic Wing over two project phases, in order to enable more academic activity to take place within the College. Phase One was the Leonard Wolfson Auditorium, providing a 155 seat auditorium, three seminar rooms, four tutors’ offices and library group work space. Phase Two created a new quad overlooked by a café, seven academic offices and two floors of new library spaces, lovingly extending the existing small but beautiful repository.

"Their work for the college has shown a remarkable sensitivity to the specific needs of the institution and to its existing architecture, and a pragmatic, flexible willingness to adapt to the college’s requirements. The results have been universally acclaimed as a triumph."
- Dame Professor Hermione Lee President, Wolfson College
