St Hilda’s Shortlisted for Brick Awards Educational Building 2022
Gort Scott’s transformative development for St Hilda’s College in Oxford has been shortlisted for the Brick Awards 2022 Educational Building category. Comprising two bold and elegant buildings which sitting in a redesigned landscape, the Anniversary Building defines the boundary of the College and strengthens its street presence, whilst the glazed Pavilion nestles on the edge of the River Cherwell and provides a space for lectures and events.
In developing the new buildings’ appearance, we have echoed and reinterpreted characteristics and idiosyncrasies of neighbouring College buildings. While the predominant material used is brick, linking these new additions to their context, decorative detailing such as a scalloped frill to the top storey of the Anniversary Building cultivates a unique identity, with precast concrete components and bronze-coloured metalwork providing contrast.
We are pleased to have been included in the Brick Awards shortlist amongst so many other exciting and innovative educational spaces.
Winners to be announced 10th November 2022
