The site for this new graduate accommodation scheme for the University of Cambridge is in a designated conservation area that was developed in the late 19th century. It is characterised by generously proportioned and finely detailed red brick Edwardian and Arts and Crafts villas standing in large gardens with occasional larger college and university buildings. The client, King’s College, asked the architect to develop a site between and behind a group of villas that it owned. The architects have responded with a pair of buildings: a modern red brick villa on the street, and a long, two-storey pavilion in the combined gardens that represents a completely new building type for the area.
