Hubert Perrodo Building nominated for award
St Peter's is delighted to announce that the award-winning Hubert Perrodo Building has been shortlisted for a prestigious 2018 Architects' Journal (AJ) Architecture Award.
The AJ Architecture Awards recognise excellence in UK architecture across a range of categories, from School project of the Year to Housing project of the Year. The Hubert Perrodo Building has been shortlisted in the Higher Education Project of the Year category.
The winner will be announced at the award ceremony, to be held on 4 December at the Roundhouse, London.
In May, the Hubert Perrodo Building was recognised with a prestigious 2018 Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) South Award. It has also been shortlisted for a 2018 Building Award.
The Hubert Perrodo Building was officially opened in March by the Chancellor of the University of Oxford, Lord Patten of Barnes, along with St Peter’s Master, Mark Damazer CBE, and members of the Perrodo family, whose generous donation to the college, one of the largest in its history, has made the work possible. Located in the college's Chavasse Quad, the building has a public space on the ground floor, six en-suite rooms, and a meeting room on the top floor with a veranda that offers superb views over the college. It is the first multi-level building to be built on the college’s main site in thirty years. The building was designed by the Winchester-based architects, Design Engine.
First published in 1895, the Architects' Journal provides critical analysis of architectural projects around the country, including homes, cultural buildings, sports centres, offices, and schools.
Design Engine were recently chosen to act as architects for the college's new Castle Hill House Project.
