The University of Cambridge, Peterhouse College


This new build gothic style building was designed by John Simpson architects to reflect the other classical buildings in their old court. We were tasked with completing the interior design of the lower ground floor. This included a new bar, conference facilities, gym, WCs and shared corridors linking the spaces. The design needed to be robust and appropriate for student use but also appealing to outside conference users. We provided architectural services comprising concept design and detail design for construction. This included liaising with services and structural engineers to integrate a complex ventilation system, fire strategy, AV design, lighting and acoustical considerations. We also specified and supplied all of the new furniture.
