|:||Construction works to the Garden Building are complete. The new two-storey stone and glass extension enhances the refurbished existing building, providing fully accessible facilities for performance, teaching and dining. Located in sensitive historic surroundings, adjacent to the 17th century College Chapel and early 20th century rector’s lodgings, the new extension is a modern addition to the 600 year old campus. Its proportion is informed by the geometry and rhythm of the existing 1905-06 Read and MacDonald building and acts as a quiet foil to its symmetrical façade. The interplay between new and old and their relationship to the surrounding landscape is emphasised throughout. Flush corner glazing on the upper level offers a reflected close view of the neighbouring Chapel and its prized ‘enamelled’ glass windows created by Abraham van Linge. In contrast, deeply recessed glazing on the ground level is intended to draw the landscape into the building.|
