These are the first images of Rick Mather Architects' competition-winning scheme for Corpus Christi College, Oxford. The new multipurpose auditorium will replace an existing, smaller music room in the college's gardens and will sit next to the bastion of the medieval city wall. Designed for hosting seminars, lectures, banquets and music performances, the building will be able to hold up to 150 people and will be covered with a roof garden and terrace. A skylight above the main 150m 2 space will give visitors views up to the nearby Christ Church Cathedral.

Rick Mather saw off an impressive shortlist of practices to land the project for Corpus Christi - one of the university city's oldest colleges. The other finalists, announced earlier this year (ajplus 14.06.06), were Alison Brooks Architects, Jamie Fobert Architects, John McAslan + Partners, Snell Associates and Wright & Wright Architects.
