St. Clares College, Oxford
Student Accommodation

A refurbishment project providing student accommodation, for an extra international residential college in Oxford. Two Edwardian properties containing unsuitable and dated accommodation are being altered and refurbished. Planning consent has been obtained for alterations to these properties, situated within a Conservation area.

The scheme incorporates increased bed spaces, en-suite shower pods and a self-contained warden's apartment. The scheme creates higher yield incomes and reduces management and supervision costs by consolidating two seperate halls of residence into one. By simply manipulating the locking arrangements of three doors, the building can function as all male or all female or one half of the building being male and the other half female. Two accessible and self-contained disabled suites are created on the ground floor.
