The kitchen and buttery lie at the heart of Newnham College, Cambridge. It is bounded on three sides by grade II and III listed buildings in the Queen Anne Style. The college now opens up to the street with a new entrance. The buttery seating accommodates 110 students and staff. At first floor level, a new sub-dividable meeting space provides seminar space for up to 100 people. We worked closely with the architect and college to select furniture which is contemporary, robust and fit for purpose.
