Oxford Student Housing

A proposed student housing scheme by TP Bennett has been accused of threatening the setting of Arne Jacobsen’s grade I-listed St Catherine’s College in Oxford, reports Building Design.

The scheme, a joint venture by Merton College and the property developer McLaren known as Manor Place, has already been altered in response to complaints, with the number of student study rooms cut from 349 to 286.

But opponents, including the leadership of St Catherine’s College, argue the revised proposal, while an improvement, would cause “substantial harm”.

The site is tucked away on the eastern edge of central Oxford, bordered by St Catherine’s just across the River Cherwell, Holywell Cemetery – where Wind in the Willows writer Kenneth Grahame is buried – and the gardens of the Magdalen Deer Park.

It has provoked many letters of objection including the Twentieth Century Society which expressed “deep concern” about overdevelopment and Oxford Civic Society, which expressed “grave misgivings… for such a jewel of a site”. The Jacobsen building dates from 1964.

“st. catherine’s college, oxford, england 1959-1964. architect: arne jacobsen, 1902-1971.
the architecture of st. catherine’s is not as simple as the plans suggest. some of the formal games played here are extreme.
look at those cantilevered beams, the section must have a 10:1 ratio. I don’t recall ever seeing that outside fehn’s idiosyncratic venice pavilion.
and the louvres of the auditorium building, suspended from the roofline like kyoto sudare mats.
the impossibly slender concrete columns here form the bottom part of a campanile.
how do you even begin to classify a building combining such elements?”

The College is situated towards the east of Oxford, on the bank of the Cherwell river. Its striking buildings in glass and concrete by the Danish architect Arne Jacobsen marry modern materials with a traditional layout around a quadrangle. Jacobsen’s designs went further than just the fabric of the buildings, with cutlery, furniture, and lampshades being of his own idiosyncratic design. The dining hall is notable for its Cumberland slate floor. The original college buildings received a Grade I listing in 1993.
