Masters Field addresses a student housing shortage within Balliol College, who are currently only able to provide accommodation for two thirds of its’ undergraduate population.
This project is being undertaken to meet this need, while modernising and increasing graduate and fellows accommodation close to the Holywell Manor Graduate Centre, along with substantial upgrades to the college sports facilities.
Working with dual Stirling Prize nominated Niall Mclaughlin Architects, the Urban Design Studio was bought onto the team during RIBA Stage 3 to progress the public realm proposals through to a full construction package.
Sitting within the Central Oxford Conservation Area, the landscape will be key in creating a transition from the historic residential landscape at the south of the site through to the collegiate landscape at the north of the site.
What we did
- Delivering landscape design services through RIBA stages 3-7, including the discharge of reserved matters.
- With design still in progress, site enabling works are due to begin in Summer 2017.
