Richard Murphy Architects

Richard Murphy Architects to develop proposals before a formal appointment is made.

Outline by RMA: “The project is for, in a first phase, a 290 seat music auditorium, foyer, practice rooms, etc and a 70-bed boutique hotel. A second phase indicates a sports hall/studio theatre and third phase a Research Institute. For the time being the College has asked us not to publish the drawings.

The competition was submitted and presented in the Spring of this year but the decision has only recently been made. It represents a very major development for the practice. Oxford and Cambridge Colleges have collected a remarkable cross section of the best of UK and foreign architecture, but the last Scottish practice to build anything there was the Glaswegian practice of Gillespie Kidd and Coia with their competition winning proposal for Robinson College Cambridge won in 1974 and completed in 1980. It is not only an immense privilege to be working in such a place but also to keep such illustrious company. Images will be published as soon as the College permits.”

Jesus College – Limited Competition:
Phase 1 – Music Auditorium, Practice Rooms, Foyer, Boutique Hotel
Phase 2 – Sports Facitlies, Research Institute
Est. £20m
