Allies and Morrison lands St John’s College masterplan

  • Comment

St John’s College in Cambridge has handed Allies and Morrison the job to develop a 20-year masterplan for its 25 ha estate in the centre and west of the city

The masterplan will address how the college will respond to the city’s expansion as the university develops land to the northwest of Cambridge.

Most of the buildings on St John’s existing site are grade I-listed and the last significant building built for the college was the Powell and Moya-designed Cripps Building in 1967.

The win comes shortly after the AJ120 firm opened up a new office in the city.

Co-founder Graham Morrison, said: ‘The office has had a very strong connection with Cambridge since the 1980’s. I studied there, Bob Allies has taught there, and a number of our employees are graduates from Cambridge. We have worked with a number of colleges in Cambridge, including Girton, Newnham and Fitzwilliam. This has only strengthened our connection to the area.

‘Our new studio is located within the Old Press Mill Lane masterplan which we are currently developing for the University of Cambridge and we are also working on a number of housing developments in Cambridge. It therefore seemed extremely logical to open an office in a city with which we have such affinity and ambition to contribute to its future.’

Mark Wells, domestic bursar at the college said: ‘We have just completed an extensive programme of refurbishment and want to ensure that we have a robust masterplan before investing in the next capital project. Allies and Morrison have an international reputation for delivering successful masterplans including Kings Cross and the Olympic Park - the college is delighted to be working with them.’
