Gort Scott Architects - Offices for a Cambridge College

Gort Scott Architects

This project for Jesus College, of Cambridge University, is for high-quality commercial office accommodation on a site in the centre of Cambridge. The requirement was to make a building that would serve as a lasting asset to the College and make a positive contribution to the surrounding area, much of which is also owned by the College.

<p>Gort Scott won this commission through an invited competition, with a scheme that responds thoughtfully to the context of the important high street setting, making generous threshold spaces and using high quality stone and brick finishes. </p><p> The scheme fulfills an ambitious floor space requirement, whilst making careful use of a tight site that is constrained by rights to light and surrounded by important listed buildings on two of its three sides.</p><p> The collective ambition of the client and design team is to make a low energy scheme, and it is recognised by the College that this will increase the longevity of the building.</p>
