St John's College, Cambridge, has commissioned 5th Studio to design a graduate hostel. Working with two listed Georgian houses, a former joinery workshop and an existing garden, the practice has created 15 study bedrooms in a dense courtyard arrangement. A new in-situ concrete block will accommodate many of the students, while visiting scholars will stay in the original house. The new block will be lined in ply, and the rough-timber workshop will be lined with fine timber joinery.

The scheme has received listed building and planning consent and work will start on site shortly.
