“Vibrant and imaginative architecture that not only moves forward the boundaries of innovation but also offers practicality and sympathy with surrounding structures and landscapes.” Ed Jarron, former Bursar at Clare Hall.
West Court is formed by the Paul Mellon Building containing 11 flats for visiting Fellows and the Robert Honeycombe building which provides 13 graduate study bedrooms. The flats are two-way facing, four to a staircase, and with the exception of a disabled person’s flat, have two bedrooms. The study bedrooms are mostly south facing looking over the garden, the first floor rooms having small balconies. They are entered from a generous double-height gallery lit from above and from each end by large high level windows. The project also included refurbishing and extending a swimming pool and gymnasium, and a new tennis court.
