Planning permission secured for St Catharine’s College

The proposal centres on the remodelling of the Dining Hall, with new lantern skylight, to reinstate the Hall as the centrepiece of the site. A new atrium and Garden Room to Chapel Court will connect key spaces including the refurbished Sherlock Library and Rare Books Collection.

Design gestures reference the College’s rich history, including a new Gallery to the Hall that borrows from the site’s past architecture. New red stonework unites the Grade-I listed 17thC Court and 1960’s McGrath Centre, strengthening coherence and identity across the campus.
