Grand opening of St Hilda’s College development

Last week our founding directors Fiona Scott and Jay Gort were invited to speak at the grand opening of our transformative front of house project for St Hilda’s College Oxford. They were joined by project architects Chris Neve, Dominic Dudley and Joe Crawford and St Hilda’s students, tutors, staff, alumni and the Lord Mayor of Oxford - to celebrate the project, which was won through an invited design competition in 2016. Credit also goes to key team members Amy Wong and the competition team including Alan Worn and Andrew Tam.

The buildings were officially opened by four former Principals of St Hilda’s: Elizabeth Llewellyn-Smith (1990 - 2001); Lady English (2001 - 2007); Sheila Forbes (2007 - 2014) and Sir Gordon Duff (2014 - 2021). During their combined 30 years as Head of House, St Hilda’s has evolved through its buildings.

We are delighted to have helped the college realise their vision of creating a new point of arrival and a stronger relationship with river and the city beyond.
