This project for Jesus College of Cambridge University is for high-quality commercial office accommodation on a site in the centre of Cambridge.  The building is designed to serve as a lasting asset to the College and to make a positive contribution to the surrounding area.

Gort Scott won this commission through an invited competition, with a scheme that responds thoughtfully to the context of the important high street setting, making generous threshold spaces and using high quality stone and brick finishes.

The scheme fulfils an ambitious floor space requirement, while making careful use of a tight site that is constrained by rights to light and surrounded by important listed buildings on two of its three sides. The building is the ‘greenest’ office building in Cambridge, achieving BREEAM Excellent and follows British Council for Offices (BCO) standards.
