St Antony’s College, Oxford

Eckersley O’Callaghan acted as Facade Consultant for St Antony’s College during the construction of a new extension to their Middle East Centre building.

On behalf of the College, EOC’s role was to provide compliance monitoring over the design and build construction team through final contractor design, fabrication and installation.

The building doubles the space available for their library and archive, and also provides additional study space and a new 117-seat auditorium.

It is clad in a complex facade with doubly curved stainless steel panels. Large glazed facades form the two ends of the building; these employ double-glazed units with custom frit patterns on multiple layers.

The building interfaces with two historic buildings and makes a striking intervention to a traditional Oxford Quad.
