Adam Architecture’s new Levine Building for Oxford University’s Trinity College has been given an award in recognition of its contribution to its historic surroundings.

Designed by practice director Hugh Petter, the building provides 46 student bedrooms, a multi-purpose auditorium, a suite of teaching rooms, a community space and café, function space with a rooftop garden, and a new library wing.

The £30m building was also created to help improve diversity at Trinity College and to be a benchmark for overall accessibility.

It received the “new building in a Georgian context” award at the Georgian Group Architectural Awards 2022, held at the RIBA headquarters last week.

Petter said the team behind the building were “thrilled” by the recognition.

“It is testament to the exceptional people who have worked so well together to create a flexible, modern, multi-function and highly sustainable building that is fit for the 21st century and which fits comfortably in its historic setting,” he said.

“The opportunity to put a major new building next to listed buildings by some of Britain’s finest architects in a listed garden and within a conservation area is a rare one, and it has been a real privilege to do so.”

The Levine Building received planning permission from Oxford City Council in 2019.
