As Clare Hall College has grown, the social facilities for fellows and students have required enlarging. Rather than alter the existing building, we recommended providing a new social facility in the garden between the main building and a College house called Elmside. It contains a bar, meeting room, and TV room, rooms that are capable of being used as art exhibition spaces and music practice rooms.
It is sited so that it engages with an existing pathway amongst the trees and offers framed views back to the other College buildings.
