The Works

This sensitive project extends the existing senior common room building, which is Grade 1 listed and dates from 1676.

Chris Atkins was the structural engineer for the glass elements including the fa├žade, the balustrades and the featured staircase. Weathered oak louvres sat outside the structural glass box on a flitched steel and oak frame.

The new part of the first floor dining room cantilevers into the garden and the concrete element of the structure respects the existing building line.
