2021 RIBA South Award Winner – The Wolfson Building, University of Oxford

 

“There is a clear architectural form and simple palette of external materials: it is two stretched volumes either side of a central glazed circulation area sitting above a solid base. The façade build-up and detailing create a visually interesting yet simple appearance, whilst concealing the components of the natural ventilation system.
 
The Wolfson Building achieves a lot given the site constraints, including being respectful to the neighbouring cemetery and hospital uses.”
