Rick Mather given go-ahead on two Oxford Uni schemes

  • Comment
Rick Mather Architects has been granted planning permission for two projects in Oxford University.

The London-based practice has been given the go-ahead to design a new library for Queen’s College, while the green light has been granted for a new auditorium at Corpus Christi College.

The library will be built underground, underneath the college’s Provost’s Garden, providing a new home for the college’s historic collections, while doubling the number of reader spaces.

Planning approval was granted last week, and work is expected to start at the end of 2008.

The Corpus Christi auditorium has been described as the ‘most important building to be constructed on site in more than 300 years.

The site of the new building lies within a bastion of the 13th-century city wall, and the building will provide space for 150 people for lectures and performances, conferences facilities and banqueting space for 60 to 120 diners.

Rick Mather hopes to begin construction on the project in July next year.
