The project represented an important opportunity to create a new quadrangle, to consolidate the majority of the College's accommodation needs in this City Centre site.

The new stone buildings complete and link the existing Arts and Crafts buildings on the site, into a coherant ensemble that provides a calm and timeless backdrop for college and school life. The irridescent scalloped top storeys reference the existing shifting rooflines of the college buildings, reflecting the established trees of the quad and the sky. This carefully modulated building is a confident, contemprary addition to the architectural heritage of New College.
