New blocks for St Hilda’s College get go-ahead
Gort Scott Architects has won planning permission for a pair of buildings that it says will give Oxford University’s St Hilda’s College a new “front of house”.
Members of Oxford City Council’s planning committee last month unanimously approved the practice’s proposals for new student accommodation, fellows rooms, teaching space and a common room in two new buildings for the college, which faces Cowley Place and backs on to the River Cherwell.
As well as a roof terrace overlooking the river and Christ Church Meadows, the new development will also feature a gatehouse tower with decorative crenellation that references symbols of the college.
