Richard Murphy Architects has won a competition to build a new auditorium, hotel, sports facilities and research institute at Jesus College, Cambridge.
The Edinburgh-based practice beat London-based firms Burrell Foley Fischer and Haworth Tompkins, and Spanish architect Rafael Moneo, to bag the £20 million scheme.
The first phase consists of a music auditorium, foyer, practice rooms and a 70-bed boutique hotel on Jesus Lane, which may be constructed behind the retained facades of derelict existing properties.
The second phase includes a sports centre - which can be converted to a studio theatre - and a small research institute.
The scheme, on which Arup is the engineer, will go in for planning later this year.by Max Thompson
