The Queen's College Oxford
A phased programme of works to student and staff spaces across the Grade I listed college site, including a new Porter’s Lodge and access improvements.
BHA were selected following design competition to design a new Porters’ Lodge at The Queen's College Oxford. The scheme involves the sensitive adaptation of the entrance quad at the Grade I listed building with the aim of improving entrance facilities and access into the College.
We were subsequently appointed to carry out a site-wide review of existing student and staff living and teaching accommodation, and prepare a master plan for phased implementation of improvements.
The first phase – new student bathrooms - completed in summer 2021. The second phase – a new Porters’ Lodge and accessible entrance from the High Street - is currently on site and due to complete mid 2023. This involves alterations to the adjacent 16thcentury listed Drawda building and formation of new openings into the Grade I listed quad, , believed to have been designed by Hawksmoor.
