A Semi-detached villa crescent, a terraced crescent and a mews crescent are arranged as sculptural stone objects on an elevated riverside plinth.

Scaffolding is being taken down, revealing the shimmering curved steel roof at ABA’s new 6000 m² Cohen Quad, which will expand Exeter College’s 700 year old campus in the heart of Oxford.

The new quad will house undergraduate and graduate living accommodation for 100 students, a lecture hall, seminar rooms, social learning spaces, archive, café, roof terraces, offices and fellows’ accommodation.

Student rooms and fellows studies are enclosed by patterned stainless steel that folds across wall and roof surfaces, sitting on a stone clad ‘base’ that houses the quads’ public spaces.
