Purcell Miller Tritton wins Oxford Story contest

Purcell Miller Tritton Architects has won a competition to design The Story Museum in Oxford

The practice beat eight companies to win the contract as lead designer on the £3.5 million visitor attraction and learning centre scheme.

The longlisted architects were Hawkins\Brown, Levitt Bernstein, Edward Cullinan Architects, Pippa Nissen, Pringle Richards Sharratt, Ash Sakula and Foster Wilson.

Hawkins\Brown, Pringle Richards Sharratt and PMT made it into the final shortlist of three.

PMT will be joined by structural and mechanical engineers Ramboll on the first stages of the 2,000m² city centre renovation scheme.

Niall Phillips, project leader at Purcell Miller Tritton said: ‘The brief captured our imagination and we are incredibly excited to be working closely with The Story Museum.

‘Combining our own design creativity and understanding sensitive sites to deliver this landmark venue, we hope to add our own chapter to The Story Museum’s tale.’

The Story Museum is currently engaged in a major fundraising campaign in order to see the project through to completion. The museum received a £2.2 million anonymous donation in 2009 for the purchase of a 130-year leasehold on the site.

Initial phases of the project are due for completion in 2014, and are predicted to cost £3.5 million.
