St Hilda’s appoint Solid for the Front of College project

Solid Structures are delighted to have been appointed as the civil and structural engineers for this new £12 million riverside extension to St Hilda's College.

The design features a slender tower that will mark a new entrance to the college from Cowley Place, as well as rooftop gardens and a riverside pavilion with a decorative latticed facade. The proposal also features a suite of teaching and common areas, as well as accommodation for student fellows – much of which will be placed along the boundary of the site. A paved courtyard will link with the pavilion to open up views to the River Cherwell as well as Christ Church Meadows.

London studio Gort Scott were selected following an invited competition. Construction is anticipated to commence at the start of 2018. The project looks to help mark the College’s 125th anniversary.
