About this project

In 1993, the practice won a limited competition for Gonville and Caius College, University of Cambridge. The college required new spaces to accommodate the rapidly growing number of fellows and students, and had recently purchased new neighbouring buildings which released space in the centre to create new function rooms, student and staff accommodation and new service spaces. The project had two main centrepieces, the new Lord Colyton Hall, and the Fellows' Dining Room. The project incorporated new kitchen and service facilities and a new building was inserted in the kitchen court with a dramatically top-lit servery to serve the main College Hall. The scheme was completed in 1996 and received the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors Award in 1997. The project was opened by The Prince of Wales in March 1998.
