Grade II-listed building considered one of John Partridge's finest works
Oxford council has approved plans by heritage specialist Purcell to revamp a grade II-listed building at St Antony’s College.
The Hilda Besse building was completed in 1970 by John Partridge, a partner at post-war architecture practice HKPA (Howell, Killick, Partridge & Amis).
Writing Partridge's obituary in the Guardian in 2016, architectural historian Geraint Franklin described it as "probably his finest built work... an essay in how each part comes together to make an intricate yet ordered whole".
